Dan Ariely reports on experiments in which a significant majority of participants opted for the free gift certificate —even though they would make a bigger profit by choosing the other option. But the difference between one cent and zero cents is huge. Pause for a minute or so. Instead. ask participants to raise their hand if they opted for the FREE! Alternative.Free! You will have to spend $35 to conduct this jolt. Collect the cards and set them aside. I will randomly pick one of these cards. At the beginning of the session give everyone a card with this information: Win a Fabulous Prize! At the end of this session. But the insight your participants gain from it is priceless. The person who filled out the card will win a prize of his or her own choice. Please select one of these two gift certificates as your prize. As he explains in his book.)

Here's a suggested script for what to say next. Predictably Irrational. Of course. One approach is to buy gift certificates from a credit card company. Buy two gift certificates: One for $10 and another for $25. Tell the group that you will not waste their time by analyzing the data from the cards. the difference between two cents and one cent is small. Please write your name here: _______________________________________ .
7 . Give the person the appropriate gift certificate (and collecting the $10. if appropriate).) Proceed by randomly picking a card. Think carefully about alternative choices. 6 Reversed Faces Find the differences between the boys and if you can not then turn the picture upside down.
