16 As with the results from behavioral economics, it is easy to imagine how these cognitive foibles might be dangerous in the wrong hands. In political campaigns, where they may be trying to get us to forget the all-important context of an opponent’s inflammatory statement—or in an advertisement where we are hammered again and again with the name of a product—or in partisan news media where we are told that the “fact checkers” are biased—we see the effect of these phenomena.

In each display, about an equal number of people tasted the same number of jams. But when the researchers later measured the results they found that those shoppers who had visited the booth with twenty-four choices used their coupons only 3 percent of the time, whereas those who had visited the booth with six jam choices used their coupons 30 percent of the time. In their analysis of these results, Iyengar and Lepper speculated that the complexity of the first task must have overwhelmed the shoppers.

We have suggested that this depends on a painstakingly acquired ability to exert some limited control over one’s own biases. Even among scientists, this ability may be uncommon, but those who have it may have a great influence on the development of scientific ideas. 22 To call accurate reasoners “freakish”—and assume despite their cogent performance that they must have cognitive biases anyway—is to draw a conclusion far beyond the data. Similarly, why assume without interviewing them that these skills were “painstakingly acquired” rather than natural, which would surely require an evolutionary explanation for why 10 percent of the human population apparently has this trait.
