In episode 67, The Occupational Philosophers dive into the world of personal biases, filters and perceptions or the way we take in information.
And what did they discover? We ALL take in information differently – whether we believe it or not.
In this episode, they explore:
- Confirmation bias
- Perception bias and how two people can see the same situation differently
- Frequency bias. Why am I now seeing red cars everywhere?
- How a muffin can appear 50% bigger if you are hungry (even though its not!)
- Change blindness (say what?)
- How we don’t see change in real-time – even though we think we do
- Why Heraclitus has some good advice for modern-day change
If you have read this far, well done and you have made it past some of your biases and filters. Turn up your curiosity bias and tune in!
FYI: The Inbetweeners episodes are just that – smaller episodes ‘in between’ the longer format episodes designed to give a little kickstart to enable you to be the most curious, creative and imaginative cat you can be – and have some fun in the process.
