The control and experimental groups must be identical in all relevant ways except for the introduction of a suspected causal agent into the experimental group. If the suspected causal agent is actually a causal factor of some event, then logic dictates that that event should manifest itself more significantly in the experimental than in the control group. For example, if 'C' causes 'E', when we introduce 'C' into the experimental group but not into the control group, we should find 'E' occurring in the experimental group at a significantly greater rate than in the control group. Significance is measured by relation to chance: if an event is not likely due to chance, then its occurrence is significant.
Decoy pricing is a method of strategically pricing products so that consumers will choose the one that you most want to sell to them. This can work well if you have a certain product that reaps a greater profit margin or if you are over stocked on a certain item, and you don’t want to start discounting.The method itself is quite simple as it plays on one of the factors humans use in decision making: relativity.Whether it be in love, social class, or consumer products, we all view things relative to the things around it. This visual demonstration depicts the illusion of relativity. Although the circles in the middle are the same size, when placed within the smaller circles on the left the circle seems bigger than when it is placed within the larger circles on the right.

There are at least 2 types of scarcity – Time scarcity and Quantity scarcity.“Limited Time Offer”, “One Time Offer”, “Sale Ends Today!” and “Offer valid until midnight” are all examples of time scarcity. They are very effective for getting procrastinators to take action immediately or risk missing the offer.Quantity scarcity works pretty much in the same way.
