I believe that humans are irrational because our decisions are a reflection of our desires and personalities, which is separate from what we believe would be the ideal and rational decision. For example, if everyone started wearing yellow pajamas, the reasonable choice would be to follow the trend, and wear pajamas. The reason why I would wear yellow pajamas is because I feel the peer pressure to conform to what other people are doing. Even if we believe we are making a rational decision, we are really just using our judgement to do what we think is right. Because our judgement reflects our emotional state, I believe people are not rational. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
