Feelings of security or fear largely influence how people play the game. Can these factors be used to predict whether someone will play red or black?
The red-black game is a simple reflection of how decision-making affects outcomes, like what’s called the “butterfly effect.” In Part 3, we started to see how trust, fear, and the outcomes of the red-black game are self-fulfilling prophecies.
Throughout my work story, the company CEO and my colleague Monica both played red at various points when I chose to play black. That created chaos for me because I was unprepared – and now, I was about to be defeated.
However, playing red all the time also invites total destruction. Now we’ll find out what led to Monica’s downfall.
To conclude the red-black game series, we’ll see that stability – or the appearance of stability – affects the perception and presence of trust and fear.
In the end, we’ll see that our own beliefs about the world create that reality, as well as the outcomes of the red-black game.
