I don’t know how to handle this Psychology question and need guidance.
Critical Thinking: Human beings are odd creatures. We can predict the negative consequences of certain actions, and yet, we proceed with those actions. If people were logical and thought long term, no one would eat more doughnuts than fruit, no one would start smoking, no one would fail to save money for their retirement.
So, why do so many people have bad eating habits, addictive behaviour, and no savings?
What does neuroscience tell us about this behaviour?
