My life Has Been Transformed by Game Theory

 

Game theory is the study of strategic decision making.  On a very basic level it is how we can be more efficient, effective, and productive at the lowest possible cost when we have a specific vision and goal and we must interact with other people, places and things that may be or create obstacles to our succeeding.  If you have been on this blog before just scroll down a paragraph or two and you can read new information about game theory.

 

My name is Lewis Harrison and I am called the RealUGuru by many of my students and peers because I am committed to helping each of them achieve their full potential through my books, course, mentoring and coaching.

 

 

 

I have created a system of game based strategizing that can be applied by an ordinary person to ordinary situation especially when dealing with family, friends and co-workers. My system is called Lewis Harrison’s Applied Game Theory.

Here is a bit more about Game Theory: For academics and researchers, especially economists game theory is “the study of mathematical models of conflict and cooperation between intelligent rational decision-makers.” An alternative term suggested “as a more descriptive name for the discipline” is interactive decision theory. Game theory is mainly used in economics, political science, and psychology, as well as logic, computer science, and biology. The subject first addressed zero-sum games, such that one person’s gains exactly equal net losses of the other participant or participants. Today, however, game theory applies to a wide range of behavioral relations, and has developed into an umbrella term for the logical side of decision science, including both humans and non-humans (e.g. computers, animals).
