Context for making bad decisions:
Cocoon self, surround self with yes men, protecting self from cognitive dissonance
Conformation bias: confirming evidence of our beliefs, disregarding or minimizing the impact of disconfirming evidence
Biases build up and attack our ability to reason logically
Industries wrapped around our faulty reasoning
Science is simply a process, designed specifically to overcome our biases. The scientific method:
Identify a problem
Test the hypothesis
Collect and analyze the data
Publish the test and results
It (science) is also the tiny increments in knowledge, not the eureka, that all go into a pool of knowledge.
Teach kids how we actually do think, they will appreciate science more.
Get over internal battles and trust instruments.
Don’t start with conclusion and find evidence.
Instead start with evidence, evaluate it and come to a conclusion.
Learn to use the brain more effectively.
