Damn it...

I thought that writing a paper on the new game show Deal or No Deal might be a good idea, but it's definitely not original.

Reminds me of the psychology research paper I did by mining a game show based on the prisoner's dilemma for data.

Basically, men and women have similar rates of cooporation. But men as a group ended up with much more prize money then women. I hypothesize that this is because women choose to betray or cooperate based on their feelings about their partner (do they seem trustworthy? likeable?) whereas men are more likely to cooperate when the stakes are low and to betray and try to keep the whole pot when the pot is big.

Fascinating, in a depressing way.
