What is Choice Blindness

What is Choice Blindness

Studies have shown that if you can get people to see the opposite view and engage in a conversation with themselves, that could actually make them change their views.

We sometimes like things that we have been led to believe we like, explaining away our choices afterwards. This is called choice blindness.

Self-knowledge as self-interpretation

Self-knowledge as self-interpretation

We see ourselves making a choice, & when asked why, we just try to make as much sense of it as possible when making an explanation. But we do this so quickly and with such ease that we think we actually know the answer when we answer why

It can make understanding people tricky because when you ask people the question "why", "So why do you support this issue?" "Why do you stay in this job or this relationship?" -- you may actually create an attitude that wasn't there before asking the question.

Choice blindness can be good

Choice blindness can be good

  • It means we can change our minds. Our attitudes are not set in stone. It opens up our mind to the possibility of growth. Our priorities change and so can our choices.
  • Getting rid of the need to stay consistent with our likes & dislikes is actually a huge relief and makes relational life so mush easier to live.
  • The possibility of making others understand our choices gets bigger, if we can only get them to engage with the issue and see it from the opposite view.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

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!

Shankul Varada

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.

Laetitia Berton

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!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

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.

Ghazala Begum
