In game theory, there are two types of games, finite and infinite.
||Known and Unknown
||Perpetuate the Game
When you pit a finite player vs. a finite player, the system is stable.
When you pit an infinite player vs. an infinite player, the system is stable.
In an infinite game, there are no winners and losers. Because there are no winners or losers, the only thing a player can do is drop out, when he or she no longer has resources or the will to play.
Problems arise when you pit a finite player vs. an infinite player. The finite player gets caught in quagmire.
This happens in business all the time.
The game of business is an infinite game. The concept of business has lasted longer than every single business that exists right now.
The funny thing about business is the number of companies that are playing finite games. They are playing to win, to be the best, to beat the quarter, or the year. And they are always frustrated by that company that has an amazing vision. Over the long term, the infinite player will always win…
This is what happened to the United States in Vietnam.

Everybody Lies: Big Data, New Data, and What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really Are
In Everybody Lies, Seth Stephens-Davidowitz illustrates that people hide their embarrassing thoughts from other people but not from the internet, which provides anonymity. Websites like Google function as a digital truth serum. Data allow us to see what people really want and really do, not what they say they want and say they do.
In other words, people can claim they’re furious, they can decry something as distasteful and yet they will still click.
