Bad Analysis

by F.

A new blog called Bad Analysis has a nice summary of 10 major cognitive biases. With pictures. If you can’t wait, here they are, in the opposite order presented at Bad Analysis:

  1. We’ve come this far… (sunk cost bias)
  2. Me me me! (egocentric bias)
  3. That just proves my point. (confirmation bias)
  4. That’s easy. (overconfidence)
  5. I’m #1! I’m #1! (dysfunctional competition)
  6. Mine mine mine! (endowment effect)
  7. Watch out for sharks. (availability bias)
  8. If everybody else think so… (conformity)
  9. Lets go hard 8! (illusion of control)
  10. He’s just a moron. (attribution error)
