J SogiIrrational behavior should be distinguished from the set of behaviors that are not based on rationality. Many of the issues GM Nigel has been raising recently in the areas of Eastern use of non rational methods such as Tao, Zen, etc. tapping into larger areas of the mind than cognitive thought are not based on rationality but should not be classified as irrational. There is great power in these methods. The Western idea of intuition could also be included. Recent work cited in Ariely's book Predictably Irrational shows that even those processes considered rational have hidden processes embedded in them that make their results decidedly irrational.
