Abstract: If we follow the rules of neoclassical microeconomics, the way the information is told to
individuals should not matter. But the research has been showing that this does matter. In my
bachelor thesis, I firstly introduce the term behavioral economics and describe some of the
effects which influence information processing of individuals. In the second part of my thesis
I present the main part of my bachelor thesis – detailed description of my research where I try
to answer the main question: Is there a significant difference in progress in information
processing between mathematicians and non-mathematicians after a term of studies? I also
study the initial difference between mathematicians and non-mathematicians and correlation
of their progress and other important factors like gender, GPA and an interest in the studied
program. I observe a significant difference in progress in 2 out of 7 studied effects, however,
correlation with other variables is very limited by a short-time studied period.
