Decision Making

""Life is made up of a never-ending sequence of decisions. Many decisions – such as what to
watch on television or what to eat for breakfast – are rather unimportant. Other decisions –
such as what career to pursue, whether or not to invest all of one’s savings in the purchase
of a house – can have a major impact on one’s life. This book is concerned with Decision
Making, which the Oxford Dictionary defines as “the process of deciding about something
important”. We will not attempt to address the issue of what decisions are to be considered
“important”. After all, what one person might consider an unimportant decision may be
viewed by another individual as very important. What we are interested in is the process of
making decisions and what it means to be a “rational” decision maker""--Introductory paragraph.

No matter what you’re doing--solving homework, playing a video game, simply picking out a shirt--all of your actions and decisions relate to your consciousness. But as frequently as we use it, have you ever stopped to ask yourself: What really is consciousness? In this module, we discuss the different levels of consciousness and how they can affect your behavior in a variety of situations. As well, we explore the role of consciousness in other, “altered” states like hypnosis and sleep.
