A nice piece below in Management Today on biases and cognitive dissonance.
As Daniel Kahneman puts it:
“We’re blind to our blindness. We have very little idea of how little we know. We’re not designed to know how little we know.”
A new one on me is the ‘Ikea Effect’ – being disproportionately proud of what we have produced; I can’t say making Ikea furniture has always had that effect on me… but it’s a another reality-distorting bias to watch out for.
