Likewise, if Player 2 were to choose the second column, Player 1 is Seu and Game Theory 29 better off in row 2 with a payoff of 1 as opposed to row 1 with a payoff of −6. We say that row 2 dominates row 1 for Player 1. Similarly, for Player 2, column 2 dominates column 1. Thus, the best strategy for Player 1 is to choose row 2 and the best strategy for Player 2 is to pick column 2. This pair of strategies leaves the players with the outcome (1, −1). While this is not a good outcome for Player 2, it is the best outcome that she could achieve.

But, interestingly, most of those respondents would prefer to receive $20 thirteen months from now as compared to $15 in a year. Note the dynamic inconsistency of such a preference: if they were asked after a year had elapsed, to now choose between $15 right away or $20 in a month, most would go for the immediate $15—suddenly overruling their previous, more patient, choice. Thaler (1981) conducted a more comprehensive survey. He asked respondents to imagine they had just won, for example, $15 in a lottery; how much would they have to receive, a month from now, to be equal to the immediate gain of $15?

The idea here is to transform probabilities into the somewhat idiosyncratic weights (the over- and underestimates) that people seem to apply 34 CHAPTER 2 The Ways We Decide in their decision making. Such a transformation would have to be nonadditive, and various studies presented ways to calculate expected utilities with respect to the transformed scale (Quiggin, 1982; Yaari, 1987; Schmeidler, 1989).
