The Paradox of Choice

Is more choice necessarily better?  More freedom?  More diverse views?

When does choice become too much of clutter?  Even a danger to trip over?

How do you deal with the confusion of too much choices?

Dr Barry Shwartz, a Psychologist, Professor and Author, has this very interesting TED video titled “The Paradox of Choice”, which garnered 10 million views (on TED website and Youtube combined).

Thinking that the video will be intriguing preview for some of my upcoming posts on “Choice and Latitude”.  It is related to the coming Misconception 6 of “The How To’s of Daily Gratitude”, and other topics such as Empathy/Individuality, Depression and has even has ramifications on Love and Marriage (partly why people are not ready for marriage aka longer bucket lists due to more lifestyle choice).

Hope you find the video enjoyable!

Thank you for reading, watching and/or sharing.

About the Blogger (7 Facts)

Live in a modern cosmopolitan city founded on a diamond-shaped island.

Love the city’s gardenscape, cleanliness and order.  Crimes rates are very very low, and people of various races and religion live in harmony.

Have lived and worked overseas for a couple of years, as well as travelled for work and for leisure.

My opinion (of course open to new evidence) is both Love and Logos (Logic) are important keys to Life.

Through some simplification and focusing on the important, am freer to see the beauty of life, have more fun and to give back.

Am a moderate and realist. Believe there is good cause for reasonable optimism.

Love respectful and enlightening conversations, free from Ego.  To reap maximum learning and improvement.
