Literally every person who thinks has flaws in the way they think. It’s not their fault; it’s factory-installed in their cognitive engine. That’s true for me, for you, and for any human born with a brain.

You can ignore the preset cognitive flaws and live at their mercy. Or you can improve your thinking. Step one is understanding some of the basic flaws that are most insidious and most debilitating.

In this episode I touch on three books that are quite helpful in getting a better sense of what kinds of cognitive flaws you most need to address.
