How could the estimates have been that far off? Why did he/she get so mad about that? Why is that person such a jerk? Sometimes we’re just left scratching our heads. The problem is often a result of our amazing, imperfect brains, and how we think. We have biases that we may or may not be aware of. Come learn why we tend to “anchor” on estimates. Explore the reason that most people feel smarter than average. Are smarter people less prone to bias than their dullard colleagues? Join this session to explore cognitive biases and what you can do about them.
