| Hindsight bias|
aka ( i-knew-it-all-along method).
| finding that something has happened makes it seem inevitable.|
ex: 9/11 2nd floor., research study about seperation in relationships(common sense isnt always so common)
|Overconfidence|| Once people know the answer, hindsight makes it seem obvious- so much that ppl become overconfident|
ex: etryn -> entry
Poll taken in class by students about themselves.
|*||Hindsight bias and overconfidence often leads us to overestimate our intuition. But scientific inquiry can help us sift reality from illusion.|
