The 25 cognitive biases you need to know!

Want to get ahead in life? Well, you've come to the right place. Learn these 25 cognitive biases today!

Have you ever found yourself wondering why you make the decisions you make? Why you seem to like the same things as others or why you believe only what you want to believe?

Well, it may be because certain cognitive biases are working - and they're slowly taking over your brain. Now, this really isn't something good, because it means you are somehow not in control of yourself anymore.

Cognitive biases also begin to blind you. They make you believe in certain things that could cloud your judgment - and that's why you do the things you do.

However, there are ways for you to fight these cognitive biases - and you'll find them all right here!

With the help of this book, you'll learn about the 25 cognitive biases, what they're about, and how to stop being their victim!

Basic interpretation of these biases

This book has some useful insights in a couple of areas, but on the whole the examples given were quite basic and sometimes confused, even inaccurate.

The narration is quite distracting, and feels like you are listening to an infomercial or a safety video.

I wouldn't recommend this book. Spend 30mins researching the subject on Wikipedia instead and you'll gain a better understanding of the topic.

cant expect too much given its under 2h

it kind of losses over things a bit. however you will be able to take home a couple of key points.

Unprofessional and non-technical examples

Though writers may have been trying to appeal to a broader audience, some of the examples given seemed oddly biased (funny enough). Offering examples like, "when people are always hating on Kim Kardashian" and offering potential mitigations like, people need to "stop lying to themselves" raises a red flag about the validity of the writing. Also, the reader sounded like she was annoyed at some points and just reading the script at others; never actually engaged. Disappointing to say the least especially considering such an interesting and important topic.

disappointed.

the outline of each cognitive bias is weak, and in some cases inaccurate. having studied cognitive bias I was hoping to get a reminder with some new examples.

Very quick hit on topics

The topic should be interesting. Book wasn't meaty enough for my tastes. Probably ok if you're only looking for basics.

maybe a little too concise

the author should consider revising this with more neutral pronouns. it was distracting to hear positive character attributes associated with "her" and negatives associated with "him."

swell

some of the examples didn't fit the description and some didn't even have descriptions, just examples. but it was a nice quick listen to get some insight on bias

Packed with information and “food” for thought.

I was pleasantly surprised at the content of this book. It starts super slow and the narrator was a tad story telling but I soaked up the information!
Recommend to anyone looked to figure out how the human brain ticks as far as making decisions.

does not include all the Real Cognitive Biases

It was ok but it did not include all the real Cognitive Biases.. It didn't mention the Scarcity Biase or Authority Biase for starters
