Navigating Cognitive Biases covers the definition of cognitive biases and heuristics, how these biases affect thinking and decision-making, as well as overcoming these biases to make better decisions.
Cognitive biases (thinking or brain biases) are “systematic error[s] in thinking that affect the decisions and judgments that people make.” The human thinking process is imperfect -according to Kendra Cherry.
This course covers the basics of decision-making, thought processes, and cognitive biases, as well as more detailed, specific definitions of individual biases. Exercises are sprinkled throughout the course to help you identify and overcome your own biases.
