This paper explains Brian Tracy's belief that humans do not make decisions rationally or logically, but, instead, make decisions emotionally and then seek to justify them on a rational, logical, or rational-thought basis. The paper also explains and provides examples of logical fallacies and looks at how they are often used in arguments. The paper then looks at the implications that decisions based on emotions and arguments based on logical fallacies have for society and the democratic process.
