Do Government Officials Decide More Rationally than the Rest of us?
We investigated the relative weighting of rationality and pleasure in decisions by individuals from all three branches of government. Judges, government executives, and members of parliament rated their pleasure/displeasure after reading item-sentences describing political and social problems followed by different decisions (Questionnaire One). Questionnaire Two was a multiple-choice, grouping of items from Questionnaire One. All three participant groups maximized pleasure equally in their decision making.
