• Factfulness is about the ten instincts that distort our perspective of the world and prevent us from seeing how it actually is.
10 Instincts That DISTORT Our Perspective Are:
1. The Gap Instinct
2. The Negativity Instinct
3. The Straight Line Instinct
4. The Fear Instinct
5. The Size Instinct
6. The Generalization Instinct
7. The Destiny Instinct
8. The Single Perspective
9. The Blame Instinct
10. The Urgency Instinct
Our tendency to divide things into two distinct and often conflicting groups with an imagined gap between them (e.g. us and them).
Our tendency to notice the bad more than the good (e.g. believing that things are getting worse when things are actually getting better).
Our tendency to assume that a line will just continue straight and ignoring that such lines are RARE in reality.
Our hardwired tendency to pay more attention to frightening things.
Our tendency to get things out of proportion, or misjudge the size of things .
Our tendency to mistakenly group together things or people, or countries that are actually very different.
The idea that innate characteristics determine the destinies of people, countries, religions, or cultures; that things are as they are because of INESCAPABLE reasons.
Our tendency to focus on a single cause or perspective when it comes to understanding the world (e.g. forming your worldview by relying on the media, alone).
Our tendency to find a clear, simple reason for why something bad has happened.
Our tendency to take immediate action in the face of perceived imminent danger, and in doing so, amplifying our other instincts.
“I am just a child who has never grown up. I still keep asking these 'HOW' and 'WHY' questions. Occasionally, I find an answer.” — Stephen Hawking
“Forming your worldview by relying on the media would be like forming your view about me by looking only at a picture of my foot.” ― Hans Rosling

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
