# With the 37% rule you can make decisions backed by mathematics, and that’s how it works

With the 37% rule, you could be right when it comes to buying things and even making personal decisions in life.

Throughout our lives we must take millions and millions of decisionssome easier than others, but we only have a dozen decisions that can mark the rest of our lives in an important way, be it a business decision or a personal decision. staff and what we should try to do in the most rational way possible, but always choosing the best option.

The problem is that in life we ​​will never know if we have chosen the best option, unless we are based on mathematics, and many psychologists are recommending the so-called “37% rule” to make important decisions in life and that is working for many entrepreneurs.

And it is that the ideais that we maximize priorities when making a correct decision”, be it for example choosing that mobile phone to buy ourselves this Christmas, or finding our dream home among all the options or our ideal partner, among all those appointments we have.

And basically the mathematicians they have given us the response of 37% and is that the idea is to try and discard the first options that represent 37%. It would be a calibration period during which you identify what works and what does not work, and what you want and do not want, the people you are looking for or not.

And after having discarded that initial 37%, everything that comes after, and that surpasses the previous one, is the best option.

When it comes to personal relationships, if you want to date 10 people, you should rule out the first three or four, and from there, if you date another person who exceeds the previous three or four, it would be the best match for you.

Speaking of finding a home, it would be going to see three or four houses without committing to any of them, and from there, if we find a house that we like more than the first three or four, it would be our ideal decision.

## But the heart does not understand so much about mathematics

But this has a great dilemma and that is that mathematics offers us the best answer to the problem in an optimal but not sentimental way, and that is that humans are not machines of a natural nature. rational calculation of probabilities.

For this, it would be necessary to take into account what psychology says about “exploring and exploiting”, which will depend on a series of factors of a personal nature.

And it is that a person who exploits too much could promote the formation of habits while the person who explores too much risks becoming a jack of all trades, but master of none.

And especially this might not work at all with the subject of relationships between people since if we take the 37% rule, we are likely to let our better half escape on those first three or four dates that, according to this theory, we should finish rejecting yes or yes.

probably for something business or material easier to apply.
