Another TED talk about irrational behaviour, sensory illusions and decisions. He sees illusions as a metaphor, saying that something like visual illusions, we all know, also occur in other senses and even higher level thinking.

This is a very interesting, informative and funny talk. Dan Ariely is truely a gifted speaker !
