Sample text

Even when there’s no default, advertisers sometimes try to change our choices by highlighting the option they want us to choose, and having us compare it only to the worst option. Suffering from “alternative blindness,” our minds are tricked into thinking they are the only two options, leading us to overlook additional options that might ultimately be better for us. Final summary The errors discussed here are just a sample of the hundreds of cognitive errors known to us. There are errors we’ve only discovered recently, and no doubt we will discover more in the future.

Our minds therefore believe success to be more achievable than it is because we’re constantly surrounded by success stories, and only success stories. Our brains interpret failure inaccurately, too, but in a more dangerous way. Our brains are prone to “cognitive dissonance”: a cognitive error in which we mentally reinterpret a situation to convince ourselves we haven’t really failed. For example, if we fail to get a promotion, instead of learning from the failure, we may try to convince ourselves that we didn’t really want it in the first place.

Therefore, getting good information should always be one of the first steps we take when we’re making a decision. However, even as we gather that information, our mind is susceptible to dangerous cognitive errors that distort what we learn. Unfortunately, the source of some of our information combines with our irrational thought patterns to produce information that’s not very reliable at all. Our minds have an overwhelming tendency to assume that authority figures are always correct, arguing that they wouldn’t be in the position of authority if they didn’t know what they were talking about.
