  • Summary

Dr. Jonathan Pettibone explains the decoy effect as a way to cause someone to change their preference by adding a third option that would never be selected. In asymmetric dominance theory, the decoy influences a decision maker to choose whatever option more clearly dominates the decoy. Studies on this topic suggest that context affects decisions, particularly during longer deliberation times.
