Decision-making, belief, and behavioral biases
This entry is part 22 of 22 in the series Decide

Decide: There’s usually a choice. It’s usually yours.

Decide” comes out tomorrow and I’ve done loads of research on it.

No.

Will the searching and learning ever stop?

Hopefully not.

There’s so much to learn, so much to report. How can we ever possibly learn it all? Here’s the quick answer: we can’t.

In case you were looking for a little light reading this evening by the fire, check out Wikipedia’s “List of cognitive biases.”

But it helps us formulate our own ideas and teaches us what to look for–and what to avoid. We learn, we study, we gather, we sift through the data and filter out what works best for us–and our audience.

We often learn better as a team because people see and focus on different things. I maybe never would have seen the Wikipedia article so I’m thankful my friend pointed me to it.
