Benjamin Franklin, a diplomat, inventor, scientist and writer, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, understood psychological phenomena including those involved in decision making. By trial and error, he devised a simple technique to remove unnecessary influences from the decision-making process. In the method, Benjamin used paper and pencil to meticulously list elements, assign weights to each item, and make comparisons between the results. He called this technique Moral or Prudential Algebra, but over the years, it came to be known as the Ben Franklin Method.
