Nudges, changes in information presentation or the manner by which judgments and decisions are elicited, is another method of debiasing.

People may choose healthier foods if they are better able to understand their nutritional contents and may choose lower-calorie meals if they are explicitly asked if they would like to downsize their side orders.

Other examples of nudges include:

  • changing which option is the default option to which people will be assigned if they do not expressly make a choice,
  • placing a limit on the serving size of soda, or
  • automatically enrolling employees in a retirement savings program.
