Here is a rather nifty lesson plan built around the idea of ‘satisficing’ versus ‘maximising’: how some people are happy with what they get, and others need to get the absolute best. According to the author, it can be used at the pre-intermediate level, but looks like higher levels may benefit more, especially if you use the TED video linked to the lesson and perhaps give this article as reading homework.
