The article is devoted to political and psychological aspects of governmental decision-making in the USA. In the 21st century, when social media are on their height, anthropocentric theories become the tools of global influence, serving the needs of marketing, business, political lobbying, and IT. In the age of targeted propaganda, based on psychological factors of decision-making, the personality-based approach is becoming more and more relevant. The study covers the peculiarities of academic traditions concerning the U.S. political decision-making process. It highlights the stages and the most prominent academic trends in studying choice and the role of an individual in the process of decision-making. Objective laws of transition from the rational actor model to human oriented theories, such as bureaucratic theory, groupthink theory and individual decision-making, are explained in the article. Based on the triad mentioned, the author is constructing the ‘matryoshka principle, within which one can conduct a complex analysis of choice simultaneously at three levels of political process: institutional, group level and the level of political leadership. 

Keywords: decision-making process | political decision | ‘matryoshka principle’ | academic traditions | personal factor | political and psychological processes | U.S. politics |
