Compendium of Cognitive Biases

I had never seen this Wikipedia entry on cognitive biases (there’s also a good related entry on buyer decision processes here).  I’ve found that keeping these pitfalls in mind really helps one when problem solving.

My personal favorites are Déformation professionnelle, Projection bias, and Self-serving bias.

    By the way I have included your blog into a feed blend into my own blog on the Project Lifestyle.
