Information Overload and Decision Making | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership |
A summary of John Payne's TED talk on decision making and information overload...

He uses a good example of information overload in decision making in talking about the 4 medical plans offered to him at the University – each of which had 33 different features such as additional costs for care and ambulance services. A second more common example is simply trying to select a mobile phone provider and plan – the options are dizzying and often hard to compare.
