Your Brain Is Not Your Friend: Counteract Cognitive Biases for Better Decision Making
"Our brains are confronted with a huge amount of information at every waking moment, and relegate the vast majority of our decisions to our unconscious. We simply don’t have the processing power to make every decision — where to step, when to blink, whether we might be in danger — consciously. This method works well and keeps our brains from exploding.
However, our brains take a lot of shortcuts intheir efforts to be efficient and not explode. Shortcuts like favouring the familiar, reconstructing memories, and projecting our lived experiences onto everyone else. These kinds of shortcuts often lead to discrimination, conflict, and poor decision making. The good news is, you can interrupt your biases and get your well intending but deeply flawed brain under control.
