0008 - We see the world as we are | Cognitive biases | Logical fallacies

The Unlearning Playground

Feb 12 2022 • 15 mins

Join me as I build on one of the most influential quotes I've had the good fortune of coming across - "We see the world as we are, not as the world is."

Cognitive biases and logical fallacies govern so much of our day-to-day thinking that it's almost mind-boggling when we encounter them for the first time. In this episode, I talk about the three levels at which our perceptions color the world we see.

Something that I always talk about is how you need to become the adult you never had around you as a child or as an adolescent. Becoming aware of, and unlearning the attachment to, our own biases and delusions is a major chunk of the work everyone needs to do to really become an adult.

So hop on. Let's grow up together. I'll see you in the playground. Pun intended!
