Behavioral Psychology

I have never studied behavioral finance formally but it sounds interesting after reading couple of excerpts from books and some blogs. Couple of things that I liked:

1. Incentive-cause Biases
2. Short-term or Long-term choices
3. Framing problems and decisions
4. Anchoring, Relative Bias,
5. Positive feedback, lollapalooza, Crowd-influence, Authority-influence
6. Misunderstanding probability
7. Denial
8. Commitment and Consistency (resolving cognitive dissonance), Foot-in-the-Door principle
9. Reciprocating tendency
10. Envy

and I am trying to re-read and understand the speech given by Charlie Munger to Harward Law School.
