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 Mirta talk about the Fallacy of division, which is a 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. This is very much not the case, as flour, sugar and a bunch of other ingredients are, in fact, dry. 

If you’re enjoying the series and getting value out of the episodes please remember to share them around!
