  5. Examples of decision making • A studywas done by a man named Isen. He found out that people who are happy tend to not gamble as much so they can avoid losing the happiness they have. • When they were unhappy they would go out and gamble to get a joy of winning money. If they lost they would still be in a bad mood so it wouldn’t make a difference. • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emotions_in_decision-making
