Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 14, 2014 6:48 PM

Do you know that your brain may sabotage you? This posts looks at sixteen ways the brain may set "traps" that lead us astray. Additional resources are also listed in many of these "traps."

* Equating Knowing With Learning. It takes time for us to really "learn" something, which means we need to review this new information so we can move it from short-term storage to long-term storage.

* Being Biased Towards Ourselves. If you bomb a test or assignment do you tend to base blame on others? This is one example of being biased toward ourselves. We blame the book, teacher...the list could go on.

* Making Us Think We Can Multi-task. What happens when you multi-task? Your brain is quickly switching back and forth between multiple task your brain becomes overloaded and cannot perform at full capacity.

To read more about these three items, and learn about the other 13 ways your brain may try to trick you click through to the post.
