News Article of the Week
You're not irrational, you're just quantum probabilistic: Researchers explain human decision-making with physics theory
A new trend in psychology is using quantum physics to explain humans' (sometimes) paradoxical thinking and to also help researchers resolve certain contradictions among the results of previous psychological studies. Quantum physics deals with ambiguity in the physical world, while quantum cognition is what happens when humans have to deal with ambiguity mentally. Researchers from Ohio State University argue that the quantum point of view (instead of classical probability) enables humans to make important decisions in the face of uncertainty, and lets us confront complex questions despite our limited mental resources.
