Dr. Samra comments on decision fatigue: Global National

Dr. Samra interviewed by Global National’s Mike Le Couteur about decision fatigue, specifically about this New York Times article (21 August 2011).

 

Excerpt from NY Times article:

 

“Even the wisest people won’t make good choices when they’re not rested and their glucose is low,” Baumeister points out. That’s why the truly wise don’t restructure the company at 4 p.m. They don’t make major commitments during the cocktail hour. And if a decision must be made late in the day, they know not to do it on an empty stomach. “The best decision makers,” Baumeister says, “are the ones who know when not to trust themselves.”
