Human decision making may be best understood as a triad. At the level of a single human individual, decision making depends on a variety of processes: some are more explicit whereas others have a more implicit nature. These two types of processes produce and are, in turn, influenced by, among other things, human culture.
As the scope of our discussion group was to examine human decision making, we begin with a discussion on the uniqueness of human cognition. Thereafter we explore the nature of explicit and implicit processes, and how they interact, and conclude by incorporating culture into decision making.
