A new study suggests a “good rule of thumb in decision-making is, whenever you cannot decide what you should do, choose the action that represents a change, rather than continuing the status quo,” says University of Chicago economist Steven Levitt, who conducted the study.
Levitt’s study asked 22,511 people to make a decision on a dilemma based on the outcome of a coin toss. Researchers then followed up to see whether participants followed through with the decision and how they felt about it.
The study found that “for important decisions (e.g. quitting a job or ending a relationship), individuals who were told by the coin toss to make a change are more likely to make a change, more satisfied with their decisions, and happier six months later than those whose coin toss instructed maintaining the status quo.”
