Cutting the Biases in Decision Making

We are completely one-sided. Our cerebrums were intended to be. We arrange data to store it, and that implies we need to make decisions.

Those decisions depend on our previous encounters, which, thusly, shape our points of view. They assist us with sorting out what is protected (by and large, what is known) versus where to be careful (for the most part, what is obscure). Along these lines, inclination generally assumes a part in choices.

Terrible choices can frequently be followed back to the manner in which the choices were made-the choices were not obviously characterized, the right data was not gathered, the expenses and advantages were not precisely gauged. In any case, now and again the issue lies not in the dynamic interaction yet rather in the brain of the leader

  • The mooring trap drives us to give unbalanced weight to the main data we get.
  • Business as usual snare predispositions us toward keeping up with the current circumstance in any event, when better options exist.
  • The sunk-cost trap slants us to propagate the mix-ups of the past. The affirming proof snare drives us to search out data supporting a current inclination and to limit contradicting data.
  • The judiciousness trap drives us to be overcautious when we make gauges about questionable occasions.

The review capacity trap prompts us to give unjustifiable load to later, sensational occasions.

Here is an illustration of one sort of predisposition, hazard avoidance, at work: We trust consistently (and in most methodology gatherings) that on the grounds that our present plan of action appeared to work yesterday.

It would be dangerous to transform it today. At the end of the day, hazard avoidance leans us toward keeping the state of affairs, accepting that the future will look like the past. Considering what we’ve seen in 2020, is that a protected supposition to make? Or on the other hand, do we have to reevaluate the job our predispositions have played in our independent direction?

Managers can likewise find other straightforward ways to shield themselves and their associations from these psychological omissions.

What can be those mean? Your contemplations?

  1. Dearest Farooq .. my “soul-friend”
    Since the beginning of time the dilemma of limiting thought or lacking awareness have afflicted humanity .. we are filled with BIASES
    (but we rarely see them for what they are)
    .. People see what they want to see
    .. they hear what they want to hear
    Truth is rarely the Source or the Standard
    For if it were
    .. then people would better reason
    .. make better decisions

    Rather .. the standard is human-opinion .. more common than dust

    What is inherent in human nature that makes us unable to receive?
    .. that limits our capacity to grow and know rightly and may even contribute to the distortion of reality & truth?

    Picture yourself as a cup.
    Is the cup called “you” so FULL .. that nothing else can come in?
    There are LIFE-robbing .. REASON-robbing attitudes & attributes .. scenario’s that will FILL your cup to the point that nothing else can flow in.
    Meet the thieves:
    BIAS, prejudice & preconceived notions
    .. PRIDE .. arrogance & ignorance
    .. divisiveness & conflict, cynicism,
    .. LIES & misinformation
    .. a CLOSED-mind .. a HARD-heart

    You rightly say ..
    Terrible choices can frequently be followed back to the manner in which the choices were made-the choices were not obviously characterized, the right data was not gathered”
    “right data” is not in the mental equation .. in the brain (of the “leader” or whomever)

    Right-thinking produces right actions and good outcomes.
    Wrong-thinking produces wrong actions and poor outcomes.
    This principle is as sure as gravity.” – fem-v

    When we “need to make decisions” .. we would do better to have cultivated a wisdom filter for all that “data”

  2. Brother Farooq
    Thanks so much for this explication of cognitive biases. Of the many, many ways we can muddle our thinking, it is a miracle that we can make any right decisions ever.
    Many of the decisions we make daily aren’t even conscious. Our brain, on autopilot, gambles of the frequency of past action to guide today’s actions. And that is a good thing. Can you imagine driving daily with the same focus you did when you learned?
    The trick is recognizing when, for which decisions and actions, we need to switch our brain ouut of autopilot and into focused attention and then recognize the 172 cognitive biases that might get in the way.
