From a tweet in the #growthmindset stream, I found my way to this nice article: Three Cognitive Biases That Stunt Your Personal Growth.
The three biases are: confirmation bias, conservatism bias, and conformity bias, with solutions for each one as follows:
- Solution: Purposefully open your mind. Objectively considering “the other side of the story” does not mean you have to accept it. But at least you have a shot at growth.
- Solution: As with goals, sometimes we need to quickly adapt in the face of new and contrary indications. Take the time to verify, but then make a move.
- Solution: Have the courage to act according to your own convictions.
Open your mind with a new perspective.
