Find out how our brain works to avoid errors of judgement
Our path to wisdom begins with the brain, with its physiology and its mechanisms in reaction to the experiences to which we are subjected. The 28 biases, or errors of judgement, which all human beings tend to make, can be kept in check by applying our knowledge. In the same way, by acquiring analytical skills and abilities, we can protect ourselves from being misled by numbers. Ultimately, our brain is a muscle, which we need to train, in order to make it work better. For this purpose, there are certain simple techniques, which we can learn to master and we can discover these in Seeking Wisdom.
Many useful tips to:
- Understand the automatic brain mechanisms that lead us to make errors of judgement.
- Learn some useful techniques to avoid getting tricked by numbers and maths.
- Discover some techniques to train our brains to think better, such as reverse thinking, focus and the scientific method.
