If you are curious about how I started my Indiehacker journey 🗺️, its progression 🎢 and the most important lessons learned 📚, here's part one.

👉 How my very first mobile app sparked my interest in building internet businesses


CaseTools is a mobile app that helps young professionals 👩‍💼 prepare for their upcoming management consulting job interviews 💼 at companies such as McKinsey, Boston Consulting Group or Bain.

It became so popular that it was enough to pay for my college room at some point.

🤔 Why did I build CaseTools?

Back at college in 2018, I was the head of Austria's largest student consultancy and had big ambitions of becoming a management consultant, helping companies with their business strategy and positioning. Wearing suits and flying every week.

So, der #Ladefrust bei Elektroautos kommt ja nun wirklich nicht nur, weil ich nie eine freie Ladesäule finde. Sondern auch weil, da einfach nix reinpasst in diesen Reiskocher!
Ist ja kein Platz mit diesen Monster-Akkus!
Na, wer hat sich das auch schon mal anhören müssen?
Und ...
...klar: Menschen kaufen sich Autos nicht für den #DurschnittsDienstag.
Sondern für das absolute #WorstCaseWochenende, wenn Tante Trude mit ihrem Kleintierzoo im Wintersturm ins Hochgebirge umziehen will.
Das ist einfach simple #BehavioralEconomics.
Und da geht es den Menschen wie den Leuten.
Also den Elektroautos wie den Verbrennern.
Aber die Frage bleibt natürlich schon:
Haben Elektroautos jetzt einen kleineren...

Teoría de la mente #BehavioralEconomics

- Eso, ¿en qué consiste?
- En que te das cuenta de que los demás tienen ideas en la cabeza, igual que tú, y estableces hipótesis respecto de esas ideas. Esto es fundamental, porque constituye la base de la manipulación y del engaño.
Los animales no pueden mentir porque carecen de una teoría de la mente. Cuando tienes una teoría de la mente te pasas la vida imaginando lo que piensa el otro. Si no te interesa lo que crees que piensa, intentas meterle una idea distinta.
Keynes fue el primero en incorporar este concepto en economía (1936) con su metáfora del concurso de belleza, Las personas deciden sus inversiones basándose en observaciones de lo que otros están haciendo, o pensando hacer, con su dinero.…

Para un artículo @efpa_es, me han pedido algunas notas bibliográficas (con su correspondiente explicación) principales contribuciones campo psicología mercados o behavioral economics. El primero: Confusión de confusiones, J De La Vega (1688).
El temprano manual de De La Vega contiene inumerables perlas de sabiduría bursátil incluídas atentas observaciones sobre "bulls"/"bears", overconfidence, herd behavior, o la ya conocida aversión a la pérdida. Libro fundamental para cualquier inversor.
Un segundo libro es Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions (1841), de MacKay, quizás el mejor manual para entender como se extienden los pánicos y que es el comportamiento de manada. Contiene la mejor descripción burbuja Compañía de los Mares del Sur. #psicology #bubbles

Watching @UKParliament statement from @MattHancock.

Very glad to see collegiate approach from @JonAshworth & @MattHancock and great to see thanks to the Paymaster General, @NazShahBfd, @wesstreeting, @SayeedaWarsi, @BoardofDeputies the concerns on forced cremation have been met.
I'm concerned MPs who due to the outdated voting system are putting their health at risk as they need to scrutinise the #CoronavirusBillUK but should have been able to scrutinise this virtually. /1
I'm worried for all those there and think its mad that @MattHancock who looks ill is having to deal with people like @SteveBakerHW and @CarolineLucas who are being so rude to @MattHancock and the other MPs. /2

A short thread on an updated WP published in @nberpubs: Testing the effectiveness of consumer financial disclosure. With @stefanhunt, Christopher Palmer (@MITSloan) and Redis Zaliuaskas. #EconTwitter #BehavioralEconomics #RCT (1/n)
Savings accounts are widespread (93% of UK pop.) and important (deposits total ~£700bn). Instant access savings accounts are the most common form of saving in the UK and are relatively simple - most people say the interest rate is the most important feature (2/n)
Accounts typically provide a high introductory interest rate in the 1st year (“front book”) but lower rates in subsequent years (“back book”). Despite this and despite being easy to switch (15 minutes on average), a 3rd of deposits sit in accounts more than 5 years old (3/n)

Hey @pauldadams let's thread this! A summary of four working papers on credit cards in N tweets. Especially for those interested in #HouseholdFinance #BehavioralEconomics #debt #RCTs 1/n
1 in 4 UK credit card payments are at or close to the minimum payment (US similar). Minimum payment information on credit cards appears to act as an anchor making consumers more likely to pay at or close to the minimum. How can we help consumers to pay more? 2/n
PAPER 1 - Increasing credit card payments using choice architecture: The case of anchors and prompts... 3/n

Finished reading "Thinking, Fast and Slow". It's the Maxwell equations of human behavior. This book should be a prereq for everything
Continuing down the #behavioraleconomics rabbit hole,@danariely "Predictably Irrational" makes so much sense and terrifying at the same time
@danariely @danariely's "The Honest Truth About Dishonesty" is a great book that proves Dr. House's claim - everybody lies #behavioraleconomics
