In 2013 and 2014, Dan Ariely taught an online class through Coursera called “A Beginner’s Guide to Irrational Behavior.” The class explored some of the many ways in which we behave in less than rational ways, and how we might overcome our shortcomings. It also considered cases where our irrationalities work in our favor, and how we can harness these human tendencies to make better decisions. The topics covered were Irrationality, the Psychology of Money, Dishonesty, Labor and Motivation, Self-control, and Emotion.
