The Most Common Cognitive Biases

  • Representativeness Heuristic: assumes that if something reminds us of something we know already, it is part of the same group.
  • Availability Heuristic: The more something comes in front of us, the more likely we think it is.
  • Anchoring Heuristic: Unconsciously giving a disproportionate amount of importance to the first piece of information that is learned.

In our daily lives, we do not have the time, knowledge or skills to make the perfect decision/choice every time, and it may be too exhausting and time-consuming to make really big decisions in a perfect way all the time. This makes us use mental shortcuts, or heuristics ...

When our heuristics make us do unreasonable things and ignore obvious dangers, it is termed as a cognitive bias, a systematic error that is based out of our unawareness.
