The influence of situational and personality factors on willingness to pay for worthless information
Frollová, Nikola ; Vranka, Marek (advisor) ; Höschlová, Eva (referee)
Thesis presents recent relevant studies of cognitive biases and false perceiving of randomness. There is an ongoing general belief that past performance automatically predicts future performance even in the cases when the result is act of randomness. This became inspiration for the main topic of my scientific research. Based on recent relevant literature I study if it is possible to influence people buying valueless information by evoking feeling of loss. Also I am trying to answer question which personal factors stand behind this behaviour. The results shows, that the manipulation with loss had nothing to do with buying valueless information. However it seems that personality factors are connected with this phenomenon to a certain extent. I had identified one factor called 'Irrational Thinking', which partly explains why 71% of the participants were interested in valueless transaction.

Katrňák, Marek ; Höschlová, Eva (advisor) ; Stehlík, Luděk (referee)
The thesis aims to describe and explain phenomenon of time perception and variables influencing the proces. Many cognitive biases are related to time perception, influencing our judgemental and decision- making processes. The thesis consists of three main parts. First one explains time perception from phenomenological as well as neurological point of view. The aim is also to uncover individual aspects of time perception such as succession, duration, subjective passage of time and time perspectives. Second, broader part is dedicated to judgement and decision-making processes, cognitive biases and biases related specifically to time perception. I focus on phenomenons of intertemporal decision, temporal discounting, time saving bias, planning fallacy and sunk cost fallacy. The effort was to reveal variables entering the proces while offering practical approaches to eliminate impact of such biases. The third part proposes a research aiming to explain the influence of educational intervention on planning behavior and examines it's relation to time perspectives. Powered by TCPDF (www.tcpdf.org)
