All the cognitive biases in one infographic


For a high resolution version, click here:

Everyone is biased in one way or another. From their genomes to their brains, humans are a social and rather malleable species. And that makes us vulnerable to a wide range of illogical and biased thought processes.

While they may be wrong, cognitive biases are a part of who we are. Some biases can be dangerous, and need to be kept in check, while others are less harmful but can sometimes be useful survival tools. Either way, they affect how we think and act in our day-to-day lives.

This infographic from DesignHacks.co shows us all the kinds of bias we are capable of. Have a look, and just try to tell me you’re not guilty of at least four.
