We are going to be explaining 12 cognitive biases in this video and presenting them in a format that you can easily understand to help you make better decision in your life. Cognitive biases are flaws in logical thinking that clear the path to bad decisions, so learning about these ideas can reduce errors in your thought process, leading to a more successful life. These biases are very closely related to logical fallacies, which may help you win an argument or present information better.
1)Anchoring Bias
2)Availability Heuristic bias
3)Bandwagon Bias
4)Choice Supportive Bias
5)Confirmation Bias
6)Ostrich Bias
7)Outcome Bias
9)Placebo bias
10)Survivorship Bias
11)Selective Perception Bias
12)Blind Spot Bias

The real bias, is the bias against 'biases'. In real time, these biases/heuristics lead directly and indirectly into new insights. For example, with confirmation bias, it helps serve as empirical evidence towards what we believe . For example, with confirmation bias if "we tend to confirm information we believe" through multiple lines of information, in a certain situation, then there is probably something factual about what we believe, and we know its safe to spend more time on rigorously justifying/proving it. Where as linear thinkers tend to miss on the opportunity. That is a tenant of EMPIRICISM - NOT A BIAS. There is a difference between using a bias to make a quick and impulsive decision in a trivial situation, for which there is little at stake, and using a sense of our biases (in harmony with rationality) towards solving critical problems. In effect, these anti-bias proponents are merely talented straw-man engineers; mostly achievement < IQ types and graying anglophiles who indulge in a deluded sense of intellectual worth.

I realized that I have a confirmation bias when I do an academic research. I do not want to learn something new.

I have worked with a lot of medical scientists and to my surprise, most of them have at least one of these biases. These biases, in addition to publication bias, greatly impact what we believe as Science and this is alarming. It is time for the scientists to be educated on these biases and they should be empowered to find the truth instead of the pressure to publish paper.

Great Video on why something as Ridiculous as Religions are still alive and Prosperous today. Here we are just months away from 2020, yet the vast majority of the U.S. Population still believe in their Invisible friend!! Why? Because as the video explains, it's all about all of those "Cognitive Biases". Everything from -- 0:18 Anchoring Bias 1:22 Availability Bias 2:22 Bandwagon Effect 3:07 Choice Supportive Bias 3:50 Confirmation Bias 4:28 Ostrich Bias 5:19 Outcome Bias 6:11 Overconfidence 6:51 Placebo Effect 7:42 Survivorship Bias 8:29 Selective Perception 9:07 Blind Spot Bias With all those biases, people keep making EXCUSE after EXCUSE for their supposed loving All Powerful and All Knowing "god". Supposedly "Omnipotent"........yet can't survive without all those Biases. If only more people would actually READ their supposed "holy" books.......

The entire second example of more dying from falling T.V. sets, etc... is utter bullshit. Terrorists kill thousands of people worldwide every year. Falling T.V. sets...LOLZ. Where did you dig up that bullshit statistic? That reminds me of all those lies you see on television about a woman being raped every five seconds, or a person dying of cancer every minute. They're LYING. They are just pulling numbers out of their ass because they know you're gullible enough to believe it and because they want your money.

All communication is biased. The whole point of communication IS to express bias. A sentence without bias says very little - if anything at all.

What if a terrorist gets there hands on a weapon of mass destruction eg Virus and killed 1billion people, would that change one of the bias? So if the danger is there, which it IS, shouldn't we assume that terrorism is really dangerous!

Availability heuristic bias: the reason people are so terrified to be parents, and tell their kids to go play outside like nature intended. You're more likely to be struck by lightning than to be kidnapped, yet we focus on prepping for things like this when it's a total waste of time and worrying about it does more harm to society than being realistic.

survivoship bias= when someone says "it's their fault if poor people are poor. In USA, if you work hard you can accomplish anything, look at me I started from nothing and now I am a billionnaire, I earned everything I have"= Select only "the survivor" who got the luck to suceed and make a generalisation ignoring all the people who worked as hard as him but didn't got the luck to succeed.

the way this channel explains choice supportive bias seems like they're making an error because of a confounding variable (a variable influencing both the outcome and the cause, leading to innacurate associations). If someone bought a mac to begin with, it's because he though, before having made that choice, that macs had less downsides. So it's normal that he still thinks it later, it's not because he wants to confirm his choice no matter what, it's because it's his opinion since the begining. "his choice to buy a mac" and ""he defends mac after having bought one" don't have any causality link. The confounding variable "that guy thought mac were better before having bought one" is the cause for both. It's like saying "people who repeated a yr in high school are more likely to have lower grades in college so we can conclude that repeat a year in high school causes student to have lower grade in college". It's an inacurate reasoning, there isn't actually a causality link between "repeat a yr in high school" and "lower college grade". The confounding variable "he has a bad school level" is the cause for both.

2:18 - Yes but is that because they stop terrorists attacks that people die less from them, or is it simply there is less terrorist attacks. If the police wasn't stopping people, would people die 1,000 times more. So just because a static number is low, doesn't mean another variable isn't at play reducing the risk, like police and special forces which prevent terrorism. Just thought I would point that out.

it's surprising to see a video on cognitive bias that suggest the fear of terrorism is unjustified since more people get killed by a TV falling on them. Does the US spend millions of dollars to prevent TV falling? If the news were talking about people accidentally killed by a TV the public would deem more reasonable to spend money on preventing this accidents

The 5th bias is so confirmed with me! For example, each time I finish a show, a movie or an anime, I'll be looking for a confirmation of my opinion about those. If I dislike a work, unconscously I wanna be reassured in my choice.
