2/27 (Tue.) The prardox of choice (Host: Rock)

The paradox of choice

Hi, this topic was introduced by Wenhan many many years ago in Yoyo. It was new and creative at that time; it is kind of old and not so creative now, as many of you already know it. But Yoyo people always deliver interesting ideas. I think this time it's good, too.
The following is a newer video.

Session One
1. How many different shampoos are there in a Carrefour in Taiwan? How do you make your choice buying a shampoo there? Is the shopping experience usually easy and happy for you, or not? Why?
2. Please make a list of all "the examples that modern progress has made possible for us" mentioned in the TED talk. Tell people which one is more interesting to you.
3. Share an experience of "paralysis is a consequence of having too many choices" in your life. How did you overcome the paralysis? Was the outcome good?

Session Two
4. What is the secret of happiness? Does it make sense? Does it always work? How do you make it work?
5. Do you think people in Taiwan have too much freedom so they are affected by this hard-choice effect? What are some of the things that you have seen which gives us too much choice? What do people do to get rid of it?
6. Everybody needs a fish bowl. What is your fishbowl and how does it help?
