Peter and Mirta’s series on cognitive biases continue with Hindsight Bias!
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 Hindsight Bias. Hindsight bias is our tendency to look back at an event that we could not predict at the time and think the outcome was easily predictable. It is also called the ‘knew-it-all-along’ effect.
For example, after attending a sports game, you might insist that you knew that the winning team was going to win beforehand.
In this episode, we explore this phenomenon and address the causes, as well as suggest potential solutions.
