Gert Jan Hofstede is personal professor in Artificial Sociality at the Information Technology group. In his own words, his 'long-standing aim is teasing out the generic dynamics of human social behaviour. (...) People are not unpredictable, but ill-understood.' If you would like to understand why people do stupid things too, Gert Jan wrote a blog post about it. To read his thoughts on why people do stupid things, click the link in the text.
