-Our thinking operates on two levels: concious & unconcious.

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
wreat-> water
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.
