You have started your BA studies with hard sciences, mathematics and physics at Tel Aviv University and you continued them with philosophy and psychology.

How did this switch happen and when did you decide to embrace cognitive psychology as a research adventure? Dan Ariely: Hello, Bucharest, sorry for the delayed response, hopefully this will be useful.

How did the switch happen? Actually the switch happened not because I was thinking about it, but just because I was kind of forced to switch. One of the things that happened was that I had to write to the university.

It can happen largely by accident, because one of my first professors, Hannan Frenk, he was injured himself, he lost both of his legs in an explosion and he kind of turned his personal interest in pain into his professional interest.

Through him I kind of learned a lot about experimental psychology but I also learned about how you can take your on interest in life and turn it into your professional interest. Beatrice Popescu: Your mentor is Daniel Kahneman, the famous cognitive psychologist who also recommended you to enter the field of behavioral economics and urged you to also obtain a doctorate in business administration. Can you describe in a few phrases in which way your collaboration with Prof.

Kahneman changed your thinking? Dan Ariely: Daniel Kahneman is an incredibly thoughtful, interesting, creative guy and he has influenced me in many ways.

In the last years Danny has moved to try and influence policy in a bigger way and that has influenced me as well and I think actually the whole field is now much more interested in contributing to the questions about how do we design life in a better way from a policy perspective.

As a research psychologist, what advice do you have for people hit by drama in their lives? Dan Ariely: Thanks for the question. This question is about my essay on pain. What advice do I have for people who are hit by trauma?

I actually don't know. As you can imagine, lots of people with injuries write to me and they ask me a lot of interesting questions, tell me about their lives, they ask questions about resiliency, about what gets people to be more resilient, less resilient? Is behavioral economics able to explain all of our behaviors and also, does it have an answer for all our worries?

Dan Ariely: No, absolutely not, we can explain some of them and they have an answer for those and again, of course not.

Two things are important to consider here: the first one is that, of course, science is just kind of work in progress, but the other thing to realize is that the world is also changing. Therefore, if you think about the world of physics, the world of physics is kind of stable, but if you think about the world of social science, the world of social science keeps on changing: ten years ago we didn't have cell phones, we didn't have facebook and life was different, the patients were different, the mistakes that people were making were different.

I think that social science would never get all the records of all the irrational behaviors, because technology and society would keep on moving forward and people would discover new ways to get things wrong or they will discover some ways that were dormantly wrong to be now more actively wrong.

Can we do it by getting people to be more moral and can we discount prices sufficiently to curb the frees? I don't think we could, I don't think either of them. I think that what we find about this, honestly, is that people find lots of ways to rationalize their behaviors and I think that when it comes to digital goods people have lots of good ways, lots of effective ways to rationalize their behavior. Even if it was very cheap, they would acknowledge it was very cheap, but they would say yes, it could be a little bit less, but I don't think it could stop it.

Beatrice Popescu: Together with a team of researchers in you won the Ig Nobel prize for your research paper on the behavioral impact of a higher price.

Predictably Irrational, Revised and Expanded Edition (Kobo eBook)

One of the study conclusions is that even though in general we look for free or discounted products, when it comes to health, we look for higher prices in medicines and brand names thinking that there is a positive correlation between price, quality and efficiency. Do you think this could also apply to psychotherapy fees? Could a person consider for example that if offered pro bono, the chances are that a therapy does not work and if highly priced, it works better?

Dan Ariely: There are some cases in which price is high, people have high expectations and therefore they have a higher placebo effect and when the price is low, they have low expectations and therefore a low placebo effect and even a nocebo effect in that case. Do I think this could apply to other things as well?

Of course, I think that the price certainly grabs our attention, we think about it and because of that, it has an ability to influence the expectations of quality.

And the reality is that we have lots of things in those cases when people don't know the quality.

Beatrice Popescu: In rational emotive behavior therapy Albert Ellis we often try to help the client to replace the irrational thinking with rational cognitions, hoping that negative emotions elicited by automatic thoughts will turn into positive or neutral ones that follow rational thoughts.

In the paradigm you propose, if I understand well, a bit of irrationality is not always to be rejected. Dan Ariely: Trying to help people replace irrational thinking with rational cognitions?

My main concern with irrationality is not the economic definition. Beatrice Popescu: The Dis honesty Project is your latest research assignment that turned into a documentary film, presented at Montclair Film Festival.

Like cruelty, dishonesty turns out to be a remarkably prevalent phenomenon apparently better explained nowadays by circumstances and cognitive processes than by concepts like character and moral development. Here is some research on dishonesty, some stories about people who were dishonest and how they deteriorated over time and what happened to them and we tried to go back and forth between those stories.

And the research to try and understand how research fits with people's real lives and what are the implications of fathom. But we need to combine awareness with interest in actually doing something else and then doing something else.
