Decision-making, belief, and behavioral biases
Here’s something that happens when you write a book you might not have thought about.
When friends know what your book is about and that you’re working hard on it, they want to help.
“Decide” comes out tomorrow and I’ve done loads of research on it.
But is a book ever done?
Will the searching and learning ever stop?
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.”
There are so many ways to decide I think I can positively say I can no longer … make a decision. 😉
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.
