授業の目的、概要等  
Why do students usually wait until the last minute to do an assignment? Why is dieting so difficult? Why do some people drink Aquarius and others drink Pocari Sweat? How much would you pay for a piece of great chocolate? Would you be happy or unhappy if your grandparents gave you 5000 yen on New Year's Day? What if you won the same 5000 yen in a contest?

This course will look at some of the ways people behave in their daily lives and what influences their behavior, using the popular book "Predictably Irrational" by Dan Ariely as a base. The course goals are to deepen students' understanding of the behavior of others and their own behavior while at the same time improving their overall English abilities and critical thinking skills.

By the end of this course, students will be able to:

1. Better understand why people make certain types of decisions

2. Make better personal decisions

3. Reflect and discuss (in English) on their own behavior and the behavior of others
