17781 ratings | 694243 views
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.

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.

If you're Black there is one in ten chance you will be killed by the police, still there is one in five you will be killed by another Black person dead is dead still it's a damn shame but being in the Philippines my chances get better each day, God please bless America shed thy grace on thee.

I hate how this list is almost alphabetical. This can’t be a coincidence
G Guitar (1 month ago)
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.

Based on psychoanalysis it’s stated we use ego defence mechanisms to see harsh truth and it causes some of these cognitive biases.

That about Apple products is completely true. You have to be a user of MacOS and Windows to be objective. Many of people just use some brand due to fashion, or so- called social proof and that notion of premium price range and then they tend to deny any downsides of these products.

metalwheelz (2 months ago)
The example given for “Availability Heuristics Bias” isn’t exactly fair. TVs may cause more deaths per year than terrorists but there is a vast and intricate anti-terrorist network in place to protect us from them. So in a basic way your example is in fact true (given my anchoring bias to believe that this information is true) however if there was an equally stringent network in place to prevent ‘TV deaths’ then the statistic would surely change. In short, sitting in front of a terrorist is certainly more dangerous than sitting in front of a TV. I would even venture to say that pulling a terrorist down off the top shelf is also more dangerous than pulling a TV down off the top shelf. However, coming across a terrorist at random is certainly less likely that coming across a TV and therefore is less likely to cause harm on any given day.  There is also the statistical problem of “per total incidents” vs. “incidents per participant”. There are likely billions more TVs than terrorists in the US. So if you weigh the number of people interactive with TVs against the number of TV deaths then the ratio is so small it is entirely insignificant. Likewise if you weigh the number of people interactive with terrorists against the number of terrorist deaths then those numbers are quite significant.

Francis Del Torto (4 months ago)
Not saying these biases don't exist to heck a large extent but they sound a lot like an easy way to make an excuse for anything rather than just confront any new information and just go your expressing x bias. There's kind of a catch 22 problem with all of these biases that assume nobody's been lied to or believe something false so this science of bias thinking creates a kind of a logic confirmation bias loophole to never address any given issue and just say your bias and here's how backed by science.

As an American, all I can ask is why so many Americans are dumb. I’m sure it’s because we spend a ton of money on stupid wars and not school. I have known this since I was a child, because the Vietnam war was going on when I was a child, and I saw on television and hated it. My stepfather wasn’t the greatest either, but I loved school and I kept thinking but I thinking that we needed more money to make the school better ever since I was in third grade and I’m 54 now.

The terrorism comment is onky applicable to certain locales the total stastic just using general population without distinctions makes it invalid some area it is more common others nearly nonexistent but the individual needs to evaluate for themselves some dont have tvs and fear it due to knowing people effected by it
Arief Rakhman (5 months ago)
So.. What's the solution? I want to know how can we think faster using heuristics and bias awareness (since we may never escape them) and maintaining slower critical thinking.. Can AI and machine learning help augment some of the critical thinking, so we can make more right decisions, faster?

Neat video. As my man Jim Jefferies paraphrases so nicely. I think therefore I am. All you know is that you exist, everything else is open to interpretation. It’s about finding the best tools to discover the most evidence based view of reality in any given situation. We think the earth doesn’t move because we don’t feel it move, we are wrong. We have evolved to be incredibly good at somethings and poor at others. Thankfully we have also discovered many useful ways of discerning fact from fiction even within our own evolutionary biology which has only done wonders for mankind

The bandwagon effect actually is a good strategy when it comes to stock. As far as clicking on videos to help you get different opinions, that’s out the window with all the tailoring done here on YouTube.
ki daniels (5 months ago)
The placebo effect accounts for over 30% of effect so if you are looking for efficacy of treatment the more accurate statistic is ONLY that over 33% so if the procedure or med is listed as 47% effective it in actuality only helping 14% of cases . Great video. Valuable. You speak fast though lol 10q Be well be free Sonoma County Ki

Based on the comments below I would say that there is a very strong stupidity bias at play here (....a lotta genetic coconuts have already struck home). Although, as with all internet commentary, its hard to sift the idiots from the agenda trolls. ...might be a nice parlour game to do so. ....better copyright that......

So I'm more likely to be killed by a coconut than a terrorist? Let's examine the facts: 1) In 2016 terrorists shot up a museum just down the street from me (Garland TX) where I could have easily been hurt or killed. 2) In 2015 terrorists killed 22 people in San Bernardino where I visit and a friend of mine is a police officer. 3) In 2016 a suicide bomber (OCONUS) detonated about 500 feet away from me, not to mention other indirect attempts. 4) A coconut tree? I'll take my chances on the coconut tree....THANKS! Oh and by the way I suppose you'll be using the same model for gun control?

Terrorism is a problem because of it's potential for destruction not for the lives it's already ended, you're misrepresenting the threat of terrorism in a video about cognitive bias.
