About Possible Benefits
from Irrational Thinking in Everyday Life

In this work, no denying the role, or even more so, the value of rational
thinking, it is assumed that it is not the only effective tool for man to achieve
his valuable goals. It is conjectured here that sometimes irrational thinking is
an equally good (and sometimes even better than rational thinking) means of
achieving them. In the light of these assumptions, the goal of my work is to
indicate the benefits that may be the result of irrational thinking in the
colloquial (i.e. unscientific) domain of everyday human practice. The given
examples of irrational thinking come from research in the field of cognitive and
social psychology and behavioural economics. Their results prove that
irrational behaviours (including thinking) are neither accidental nor senseless,
and on the contrary systematic and easy to predict, they constitute important
arguments for considering the phenomenon of irrational thinking. I also discuss
this issue although only to a limited extent.
