Dan Ariely is the James B. Duke Professor of Psychology and Behavioral Economics at Duke University and a founding member of the Center for Advanced Hindsight and co-founder of BEworks, Timeful, Genie, and Shapa Ariely is also associated with Qapital and Lemonade in the capacity of Chief Behavioral Economist and Chief Behavioral Officer, respectively. He does research in behavioral economics on the irrational ways people behave, described in plain language. His immersive introduction to irrationality took place as he overcame injuries sustained in an explosion. During a range of treatments in the burn department he faced a variety of irrational behaviors that were immensely painful and persistent. He began researching ways to better deliver painful and unavoidable treatments to patients. Ariely became engrossed with the idea that we repeatedly and predictably make the wrong decisions in many aspects of our lives and that research could help change some of these patterns. After using his knowledge of decision-making and behavioral economics to convince his girlfriend to marry him, Ariely realized that understanding decision-making can help anyone in their daily life. Ariely’s TED talks have been viewed over 10 million times. He is the author of Predictably Irrational, The Upside of Irrationality, and The (Honest) Truth About Dishonesty. All three books became New York Times Best-Sellers. He also wrote two semi-books: Irrationally Yours-an illustrated collection of his immensely popular The Wall Street Journal advice column, “Ask Ariely” and Payoff, a short TED book. Ariely was involved in the movie “(Dis)Honesty: The Truth About Lies” as both a producer and a participant and the card game, Irrational Game. All are his attempt to describe his research findings in non-academic terms, so that more people will discover the excitement of behavioral economics and use some of the insights to enrich their own lives.
