Dan Ariely was born on April 29, 1967 in New York City while his father was pursuing MBA Degree at University of Columbia. Later the family migrated to Israel. During his youth age, he faced a burn issue which changed his life. He was lighting magnesium flame. Suddenly, the flame caught him and nearly 70% of body was burnt. He was hospitalized for 3 years after-which his life was changed drastically. During that period, he experience bitter and painful treatment of burn. He wrote an article about that and researched about alternative ways of burn treatment so as to avoid the terrific pain.

I became engrossed with the idea that we repeatedly and predictably make the wrong decisions in many aspects of our lives and that research could help change some of these patterns.Dan Ariely
