Dr Daniela Rudloff: Mental 'Short-Cuts' - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Dr Daniela Rudloff: Mental 'Short-Cuts' - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Can we trust our eyes? Why does a footballer’s performance usually drop right after they’ve been sold to a high-paying football club? What exactly is “anchoring”, and why are we doing it on dry land? Daniela Rudloff will answer these and other questions by giving an introduction to the everyday mental shortcuts and biases we often employ, arguing that even though they might be misleading, they are also necessary – and almost impossible to avoid. http://www.gold.ac.uk/apru/lectures and http://skeptic.org.uk/archive
