    Cognitive Bias Episode 9 - Recency bias

    Cognitive Bias Episode 9 - Recency bias

    Peter and Mirta's series on cognitive biases continues!

     

    There are a few different cognitive biases that have a powerful influence on how you think, how you feel, and how you behave. Each episode will touch on a different bias. So make sure you tune in to them all!

     

    This week Peter and Mitra talk about the Recency bias. Recency bias favours recent events over historic ones. Recency bias gives greater importance to the most recent event, such as the final lawyer's closing argument a jury hears before being dismissed to deliberate.

     

    Recency bias should not be confused with anchoring or confirmation bias (which you can learn about in earlier podcasts). It commonly appears in employee evaluations, as a distortion in favour of recently completed activities or recollections.

    Bias in house buying with Rhiannan Jenkins

    Bias in house buying with Rhiannan Jenkins

    In this episode Peter talks with Sydney buyers agent Rhiannan Jenkins about the biases in house buying and how learning about these bias could help you in the future.  

    Many of us are convinced we're logical. But our property buying and selling decisions are rooted in psychological biases, many of which we're not even aware of.

    Rhiannan points out our price perceptions can be framed by messages from the media about pricing. How a price-related frame might work is that as soon as the market levels off we frame the purchase as if it's suddenly a bargain.

    Listen in to find out what other biases we often don't realise we have when in the process of buying or selling a house.

    If you find value in the episode or any you have listened to in the past, please recommend and share with others so that we can continue to provide this content for you.

    Cognitive Bias Episode 8 - Fallacy of division

    Cognitive Bias Episode 8 - Fallacy of division

    Peter and Mirta's series on cognitive biases continues! 

    There are a few different cognitive biases that have a powerful influence on how you think, how you feel, and how you behave. Each episode will touch on a different bias. So make sure you tune in to them all!

    This week Peter and Mitra talk about the Fallacy of division, which is the cognitive bias that occurs when a person reasons that something that is true for a whole must also be true of all or some of its parts.

    For example: If a cake is moist that must mean that all the ingredients of the cake are moist. Which is very much not the case, as flour, sugar and a bunch of other ingredients are in fact dry.

    Cognitive Bias Episode 7 - Framing Effect

    Cognitive Bias Episode 7 - Framing Effect

    Peter and Mirta's series on cognitive biases continues! 

    There are a few different cognitive biases that have a powerful influence on how you think, how you feel, and how you behave. Each episode will touch on a different bias. So make sure you tune in to them all!

    This week Peter and Mitra talk about the Framing Effect, which is the cognitive bias where an individual’s choice from a set of options is influenced more by how the information is worded than by the information itself.

    For example: If you're concerned about your blood sugar level, and you choose a chocolate that is ‘90% sugar-free’ over one that is ‘10% sugar.

    Cognitive Bias Episode 6 - Optimism Bias

    Cognitive Bias Episode 6 - Optimism Bias

    Peter and Mirta's series on cognitive biases continues! 

    There are a few different cognitive biases that have a powerful influence on how you think, how you feel, and how you behave. Each episode will touch on a different bias. So make sure you tune in to them all!

    This week Peter and Mitra talk about the Optimism bias (or the optimistic bias) which is a bias that causes someone to believe that they themselves are less likely to experience a negative event. It is also known as unrealistic optimism or comparative optimism.

    For example: people believing that they are less at risk of being a crime victim, smokers believing that they are less likely to contract lung cancer or disease than other smokers, first-time bungee jumpers believing that they are less at risk of an injury than other jumpers, or traders who think they are less exposed to potential losses in the markets.

    Cognitive Bias Episode 5 - Survivorship Bias

    Cognitive Bias Episode 5 - Survivorship Bias

    Peter and Mirta start a new series on cognitive biases! 

    There are a few different cognitive biases that have a powerful influence on how you think, how you feel, and how you behave. Each episode will touch on a different bias. So make sure you tune in to them all!

    This week Peter and Luke talk about the Survivorship Bias, which is a bias that can lead to overly optimistic beliefs because multiple failures are ignored. It can also lead to the false belief that the successes in a group have some special property, rather than just coincidence

    For example, if three of the five students with the best college grades went to the same high school, that can lead one to believe that the high school must offer an excellent education when, in fact, it may be just a much larger school instead. This can be better understood by looking at the grades of all the other students from that high school, not just the ones who made the top-five selection process.
