Lately I've been thinking a lot about the sunk cost fallacy on a number of levels. I first got reminded of the concept in Kahneman's Thinking, Fast and Slow, but McRaney has a post from '11 on his You're Not So Smart site that eventually turned into a chapter in his book.
And here's a short article from Lifehack about it.
This "10 Reasons Why Introverts Are Incredibly Attractive People" article from the same site cheers me up a little bit though.
