8 Common Mistakes in How Our Brains Think and How to Prevent Them

8 Common Mistakes in How Our Brains Think and How to Prevent Them | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Get ready to have your mind blown:

 

1. We surround ourselves with information that matches our beliefs

 

2. We believe in the “swimmer’s body” illusion

 

3. We worry about things we’ve already lost

 

4. We incorrectly predict odds

 

5. We rationalize purchases we don’t want

 

6. We make decisions based on the anchoring effect

 

7. We believe our memories more than facts

 

8. We pay more attention to stereotypes than we think

Thank you for making us "aware" of this article, Duane....

(From the article): Clearly, it’s normal for us to be irrational and to think illogically, especially when language acts as a limitation to how we think, even though we rarely realize we’re doing it. Still, being aware of the pitfalls we often fall into when making decisions can help us to at least recognize them, if not avoid them.

Have you come across any other interesting mistakes we make in the way we think?
