The way people make decisions is one of the essential topics in economic studies. This paper analyzes such phenomena as how people’s choices are affected by their opinions. Notably, the research provides answers to such questions as to whether opposing views of people on the same subject can lead to a more selfish decision, whether agents intentionally demonstrate social conformity to achieve better individual payoff. It also inspects how sensitive information can change the typical outcome.
