Numerical Thinking

Many of the important decisions that we make in life require dealing with numbers. Individuals, however, often struggle to understand and properly use numbers, which can lead to distorted decisions. I explore the psychology of numerical thinking using evidence from marathon runners, car buyers, SAT takers, baseball players, and house buyers.
