This illustrated guide explains your mind's decision biases, via Lifehacker.  Evidently there are 42 decision-making biases, 19 social biases, 8 memory biases, and 35 probability/belief biases. I haven't clicked on everything yet, but it looks like each snippet is linked elsewhere for further information.

See which category Dunning-Kruger falls under!  Thrill to the Optimism Bias!  Be astounded by how many biases have been catalogued!

I found it easier to view on Lifehacker rather than ScripD.  It's created by the Royal Society of Account Planning.

Wah. I wasn't finished reading it. Message from the site:

"A big thank you for all the interest in this study guide. It was originally created as a fun introduction that took the Cognitive Bias wiki and tried to make it easier to memorize.

However, the authors of the wiki article have expressed some concern over the accuracy of certain entries. The document is being taken down for the time being until that can be corrected. Thank you for your interest.

Sincere apologies for any troubles this caused!


I hope they upload the new, improved version soon.
And you can download it.
Woo! I mean... great!

Great reference, Little Name Atheist! Thanks.

All of these biases make more sense in light of new information on how memory is influenced by prior acts of memory.

Your Memory Is Like the Telephone Game, Altered With Each Retelling

Every time you remember an event from the past, your brain networks change in ways that can alter the later recall of the event. Thus, the next time you remember it, you might recall not the original event but what you remembered the previous time.

"A memory is not simply an image produced by time traveling back to the original event -- it can be an image that is somewhat distorted because of the prior times you remembered it,"...

"Your memory of an event can grow less precise even to the point of being totally false with each retrieval."...
