As you probably know, I’m deeply obsessed with bias, and have been trying to advocate for shifting our thinking about biases away from “annoying brain bugs” and towards “unavoidable constraints to our thinking” for a few years. Explaining exactly what that means has always been a challenge, to say the least. Almost 3 years after the first cognitive bias cheat sheet post was published, I think I finally have an answer to what we can do about our bias.
I published a Medium article titled What Can We Do About Our Bias, but you’re not a Medium subscriber, don’t worry… this friend link should enable you to still be able to read the post.
The post describes a 4-step roadmap for developing an always-on, honest relationship to bias.
Also! Substack (that I publish this newsletter through) just happened to launch discussion threads today, so if you have feedback, questions, or thoughts about this new post, click through and ask away. I will answer every question submitted within the next 24 hours as honestly as I can.
