Take Off Those Glasses: Overcoming Cognitive Biases for a Happier Life

In this episode, we encourage you to take a closer look at your own biases by removing the metaphorical glasses that may cloud your perception.

We'll delve into the impact of cognitive biases, which are patterns of thinking that deviate from rational and objective thought. We'll explore several common biases, including the optimism bias, the negativity bias, the confirmation bias, and FOMO, and discuss how they can affect our happiness.

Our biases can significantly influence our beliefs and decision-making across a range of areas, including social behavior, cognition, behavioral economics, education, management, healthcare, and even business and finance. Ultimately, recognizing and addressing our biases can help shape our perspectives and actions for the better.
