Cognitive biases are a result of the brain’s effort to simplify our incredibly complex world. They have direct implications on our safety, interactions with others, and our daily judgements and decisions. Although they are caused by unconscious errors in thinking related to things like memory and attention, there are steps we can take to train our minds to mitigate the effects of these biases (Ruhl, 2021).
One of the steps we can take is to be aware of and accountable for the way that cognitive bias impacts our thinking, actions, and decision making. TitleMax has identified:
