Let’s say you go to buy a watch, and the first one you like costs $150, which exceeds your budget, soon after you see a watch that costs $125, this new price seems reasonable now, even though this too might exceed your budget, however, as compared to the first one, it now feels like a better deal.
After reading Gates’ and Musk’s life stories, people seem to fall for the successful dropout myth , because if they can do it, why can’t you?
These stories might expose a fallacy in judgement because in reality, for one success story there are tens of thousands of stories of failure that may not be focused on because of a survivorship bias.
Focusing on only success stories results in “Survivorship Bias”.
The decoy effect occurs when a person’s choice between 2 items changes when a third option, asymmetrically dominated, is introduced.
This third option is made easy to discard.
The decoy option is added to nudge the customers towards the intended target option, which is usually more than they really need. These subtle “nudges” are not meant to be manipulative and restrictive.
The curse of knowledge is a cognitive bias, which occurs when people fail to consider that others don’t have the same background knowledge or information as they do.
Someone knowledgeable in a particular field might find it difficult to put themselves into a beginner’s shoes (or someone who is not familiar with what they’re talking about) when trying to explain a concept at a basic level.
Have you felt that whenever you’re trying to remember someone you met in the past, you find it difficult to recall them from memory but recognise them easily through looking at their pictures?
These scenarios exemplify Recognition over Recall. It’s easier for people to recognize something previously experienced than recall it from memory. Recalling from memory leads to an increase in cognitive load.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
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.
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.
