AbstractThe research in this paper explores how clustering and partitioning analysis can work to predict human decision making and behavior in the context of the reality television show Survivor. By building off of recent research in partitioning signed social networks, this research examines if it is possible to predict how people on the show will group themselves based on their observed social interactions. Also, this research examines if it is possible to predict who contestants will vote out of the social group based on their social interactions and how contestants describe one another.
