The Mistakes We Make in Haste
We will read and discuss Blind Spots by Madeleine L. Van Hecke, which explains why smart people do dumb things. Luckily, our minds work for us (mostly) 80 to 90 percent of the time. But what about the rest of the time when we jump to conclusions, don’t allow ourselves the time to think things through or can’t see the forest from the trees. This book contains anecdotes and tactics to avoid forehead-slapping duh moments. It is derived from research on cognitive myths, problems and critical thinking. Please read Preface and Chapter 1 for the first session.
