  11. 11. Overconfidence The sense-making System 1 makes us see the world as more tidy, simple, predictable, and coherent than it really is. So we think that we can predict the future. Thinking, Fast and Slow | Amanda Bentley

  16. 16. Benefits of Recognizing Biases Better design. More efficient workplaces. Happiness in everyday life. Thinking, Fast and Slow | Amanda Bentley
  17. 17. Applying the Knowledge Design: Making something that doesn’t just look nice, but is actually beneficial. The Workplace: Anchoring in negotiations and regression to the mean in daily work. Everyday: Avoiding incorrect judgments of others. Thinking, Fast and Slow | Amanda Bentley
