People make daily decisions about purchasing their favorite food, responding to a phone call, or loving someone. Scientists have been studying human’s decision-making patterns for decades. Most of the decision-making research has relied on self-report questionnaires or scales to quantify people’s preferences. Despite the prevalent use of self-report measurements, the correspondence between self-evaluations of choice and actual performance is debatable. Metaanalyses across diverse disciplines and abilities show a moderate mean correlation (M = 0.29) between self-evaluations and performance. Inaccuracy or imprecision of self-reports are also affected by factors such as social desirability, inherent to this type of inquiry.
