1/6 課堂筆記 The Art of Choosing Part 2

We're discussed the points Sheena Iyengar made in the second half of her talk:


The more choices you have, the more likely you are to make the best choice.
You will surely find the perfect match.
True or false?


False.

Why?

Because it will make me confused, because the choices become more and I must think about more reason to choose the right thing.

This makes me think about the trend for curated websites and stuff like that. Curated means someone has selected it for you according to a set of principles. Like a set of products. So you can go to a kind of shop that you know will have about what you need, and you only have to make a choice of like, three.

But always, I think it's conveneint, but I'm always confused about what should I select for what I need. You hear, this is great, that is great...

Yeah, everything is great!

So what is the best for me?

So you have to know what you want in this situation.

12/30 課堂筆記 The Art of Choosing

Participants: Maggie, Fannie, Stacy, Angela

We discussed Sheena Iyengar's TED talk, "The Art of Choosing."

"In America, when a paying customer makes a reasonable request based on her preferences, she has every right to have that request met."

In modern taiwan, this is true.
Before they would tell you, there is no sugar, or it's out.
But more and more people ask for higher quality of service, so people feel it's a basic requirement of service to meet reasonable requests.

Why would they tell you tell you there's no sugar?
To save money


"If a choice affects you , then you should be the one to make it."
Do you agree with that?

Why should I make the choice, just because it affects me?

Here's an example. In Taiwan, many parents choose the department that their kids will study. This will affect them.

So, do you agree?

I agree, but in my experience, we're still affected by someone.
I agree with you.
I want to make choices, but sometimes it's in vain.


"This is the ONLY way to ensure that your preferences and interests will be most fully accounted for."
Do you agree with that, that it's the ONLY way?
I found that Europeans or maerican like to say ONLY, but we like to say "maybe".
