(bismillah) (salam) respected brothers and sisters. I have been testing for some time the psychology of 'rock-paper-scissors'. I'm sure everyone's familiar with this game. I have tested it with family members to be exact, from young to old. The game is simple: You and the other party say that whoever loses will perform x. It gets interesting in the part of problems which we face and which we see as difficult: washing the dishes choosing which program to watch (American or something from home-country) choosing which game to play (Fifa or Halo) where to go on vacation (within the selected budget and likes of both persons, e.g. Spain or Italy) what to eat (when mum cooks and offers choices for example, or which restaurant to choose from) etc. The choices should be equal so that the person who has the most to lose at that time will still want to play the game. Also, you may want to start with small things and then build it up as to let the parties get used to this form of choice-making. The results: people are more willing to play when the games of chance are introduced people are risk-seeking (as everyone thinks they'll win) subjects liked the idea of equality, age does not matter (as proven numerous times by elderly uncles and aunts) subjects indeed performed their obligation after loss with a smile on their face Implications: It can solve differing problems between brothers/sisters but also between husband and wife or parents and children. The rules are simple, but the psychology of accepting a loss is sometimes difficult for some persons. Therefore, this simple psychological game (or any other similar game for that matter) should be played by fair persons who will accept whatever fate throws at them as the result will remain unknown until you throw your hand in the game. So, what do you guys think about deciding such matters in this manner? Do you think it will prove helpful in your family circle? What are its flaws? Are the better games around that could help solve family problems? Remember, the Prophet (pbuh) also chose a form of chance-game (drawing straws i think it was) when he had to choose which wife to bring along with him at some times. Anyway, thought I'd share this with you, it's a pretty good psychology game once you get used to it. Any feedback on this would be helpful.
