What is Harrison’s Applied Game Theory?

 

 

Q. Lewis, you often mention your personal growth and self-improvement coaching system, Harrison’s Applied Game Theory (HAGT). What exactly is Harrison’s Applied Game Theory and what skills do I need to use it in order to be more effective, efficient, and productive?

A. HAGT (pronounced “hacked”) is an umbrella term for various games and strategies based on game theory and gamer psychology. It is easy to understand and use approach to problem-solving, and self-awareness. HAGT is strongly influenced by John von Neumann’s original ideas concerning gamer-thinking as well as economic, behavioral, and evolutionary game theory. Don’t let the academic terms or the word “theory”, scare you. The system is so simple that it can be taught to a nine-year-old.

 

 

 

 

 

HAGT expands Dr. von Neumann’s original work by combining logic, rational thought, deep introspection, and intuition for the purpose of helping an individual make wiser decisions. These HAGT processes create practical, efficient, precise, and productive strategies for solving problems. The goal of HAGT, is to enable even a child, to maximize love, kindness, compassion, empathy, joy, freedom, clarity of thought, emotional balance, personal contentment, inner wisdom, and happiness,  in creating a meaningful life and supporting forming collaborative thinkers.

 

 

 

 

What makes HAGT distinct from classical mathematical game theory?  The game theory created by John von Neumann, and which has garnered over a dozen Nobel Prizes over the last four decades, generally assumes that the players in most game spaces, situations, scenarios, and gaming environments, are rational thinkers (agents). HAGT makes no such assumption. Rather it is assumed for the most part by a HAGT thinker, that most players are actually irrational, and emotionally motivated agents. Though many individuals seem, on the surface at least,  to be rational, they only appear this way because they have the ability to publically present their irrationality in some rational form. This serves them, in that by doing so that they will be accepted or at least not rejected by the group they have chosen to be part of. However, what makes them part of the group is also their fatal flaw. If such an individual finds themselves in a competitive or adversarial situation with a player skilled in HAGT, the HAGT strategist is likely to  as they say on the Survivor Television show to “Outwit, Outplay, and Outlast” the person not skilled in HAGT

 

 

 

 

Though HAGT is not mathematically sophisticated in the ways that many strategies associated with classical game theory are, HAGT is extremely flexible as a critical thinking tool for maximizing an individual’s potential at the lowest possible cost. I have used Applied Game Theory to fine-tune how I run my life, on a daily basis for over thirty years.  I am sharing it with you, so that you and others may have the same opportunities I have had for achieving wealth, success, freedom, and the chance to serve others as a philanthropist.

 

 

 

 

The only skill you need to use HAGT is the ability to distinguish a belief you have from a fact – an idea  that has evidence to support it. Unfortunately, most people do not have this skill. They are ruled by their emotions, unresolved childhood traumas, and attachments to ideas that seem rational on the surface but actually reflect their cognitive biases and logical fallacies. Unless an individual is willing to explore these challenges, obstacles, and limitations, what my friend calls “mind prisons”, it is unlikely we can use HAGT effectively, to be more creative, innovative, and transcend obstacles

 

 

 

 

 

As you know, if you read my blogs consistently, I am not a big fan of ideas related to self-improvement, or game theory that have no practical application. I address this issue by promoting a system I have adopted called the New Operation Takeover Recession.
