Strategic Behavior in Individual Response
James Li Egan McComb Edmund Xu Sherry Zhang10 December, 2010
 
Abstract
In this report, we analyze the expectations of strategic behavior amongstudents at Los Altos High School, specifically through the use of gametheory puzzles. Using a survey and various methods of statistical analysis,
we obtain both holistic and stratified results. We find that while students are
attuned to the behavior of the majority, they cannot effectively eschew this
behavior themselves to avoid the fallacy of composition. Furthermore, we findthat the correct minority response is the same as the majority response on an
equivalent but antithetical question. Lastly, we determine an answer to the
classic “2/3 of the average” game theory puzzle in a real world environment
which reproduces independent results.
