My Cognitive Bias

A cognitive bias explained every time you open a new tab.

What is My Cognitive Bias?
My Cognitive Bias is a unique Chrome extension that seeks to educate users about cognitive biases. Every time a new tab is opened, a different cognitive bias is explained. These biases, often unbeknownst to us, affect our decisions, opinions, and behaviours. By learning about these biases, it is possible to modify our actions through bias correction. The tool aims to help users better understand and manage their cognitive biases, promoting more rational decisions and behavior.

Summary

A cognitive bias explained every time you open a new tab.

Cognitive biases affect everything we do. Amongst other things, they make us spend impulsively, be overly influenced by what other people think. They change our beliefs, our opinions, and our decisions, and we have no idea it is happening.

When we are aware of our biases, it is sometimes possible, to estimate the bias and then modify our behaviour. This procedure is called bias correction, and this is the reason why we built this extension.

Inspired by the Cognitive Bias Codex by DesignHacks.co. List of biases mostly by Wikipedia.

Update If you're looking for a more advanced plugin, get a Cognitive Bias, Mental Model or Dark Pattern explained every time you open a new tab from BrainyTab.com. It also gives you an amazing way to save and manage bookmarks easily (super fast search included).
