Whether you’ve known it or not, many of your decisions have been based on faulty reasoning and unsound logic—predictable errors psychologists and behavioral economists call, “cognitive biases.” This course introduces ten biases that most commonly influence your decisions and provides real-world examples of them in action. You’ll also learn strategies on how to avoid falling prey to the influence of each one. After all, everyone else is taking this course, why aren’t you?
