cognitive bias post illustration 2015It’s pretty amazing really. We’re aware of various cognitive biases that come up as we go through our days and see them spouted in various arguments and disagreements. But they’re hard to remember sometimes.

You may have seen the Wikipedia page devoted to cognitive biases but here’s something novel: a pictorial representation of 20 common cognitive biases that you can print out on a single 8.5×11 page of paper. And it’s published in an unexpected place: The Business Insider website. Here it is presented in full but if you have trouble reading it due to size constraints, go take a look at the page linked above and print this out for your routine use and avoid, as the Business Insider says, “screwing up your decisions”.
