Loewenstein and Chater : "The under-appreciated drive for sense-making

1-s2.0-S0167268115002838-main.pdf

This paper draws attention to a powerful human motive that has not yet been incorporated
into economics: the desire to make sense of our immediate experience, our life, and our
world. We propose that evolution has produced a ‘drive for sense-making’ which motivates
people to gather, attend to, and process information in a fashion that augments, and complements,
autonomous sense-making.
