1.) Reflect on the process you used when choosing to attend College. Were you more of a satisficer or a maximizer when it came to your college choice, and why? Be sure your answer includes specific examples and clearly shows that you understand the difference between satisficing and maximizing. (worth 20 points)
2.) Barry Schwartz says that one demographic variable that predicts maximizing is age. To be specific, the older a person is, the less likely they are to be a maximizer (author Q & A, p. 5). My question for you is, do you think this is an age-related effect (that all elderly people show) or a cohort effect (that only one particular generation of elderly people show)? To put it another way, when people your age are senior citizens, will you be less likely to be maximizers, too? Is the tendency for older people to avoid maximizing gained from life experience? Please explain. (worth 10 points).
