This was part of our final exam for our class on Game Theory, and it asked us to challenge one of the main foundations of Game Theory: that all participants are rational actors, and will make the choice that benefits them most. However, as the papers we read proved, humans aren’t rational actors, but emotional ones. We make decisions with variables that cannot be accounted for in an equation. This was a surprising and satisfying assignment that brought out the psychology in math and decision making.
