That is, it’s not that we have anything against changing from the default option to the better choice – we just don’t get around to it. Here, where it really matters, we accept the status quo. ) These are just a few examples out of many; as I say, the research is extensive. We generally suffer from many flaws in instrumental reasoning that interfere with our ability to make effective and efficient choices. The number of biases cataloged is vast and the literature which demonstrates and discusses them is ever-growing.
Strategy to be successful leads us to choose a different strategy, and sometimes it doesn’t, because we are not entirely rational when it comes to choosing means. Some might argue that since we learn socially, at least others can take advantage of these failures and develop good habits even when it’s too late for the actual victims. However, while this may happen sometimes, even this sort of learning is hampered by our difficulty in extrapolating from others’ experience to our own.
