13 Cognitive Biases That Really Screw Things Up For You

2016-12-01-1480620871-9215537-CognitiveBiasesThatReallyScrewThingsUpForYouHP

The human brain is a natural wonder. It produces more than 50,000 thoughts each day and 100,000 chemical reactions each second. With this amount of processing power, you would think our judgment would be highly accurate, but that’s far from the case.

Our judgments are often inaccurate because the brain relies on cognitive biases over hard evidence. Cognitive bias is the tendency to make irrational judgments in consistent patterns.

Researchers have found that cognitive bias wreaks havoc by forcing people to make poor, irrational judgments:

  • A Queensland University study found that blonde women earned, on average, 7% higher salaries than redheads and brunettes.
  • A Duke study found that people with “mature” faces experienced more career success than those with “baby” faces. “Baby” faces were defined as those with small chins, wider cheeks, and bigger eyes. “Mature” faces were those with bigger chins, narrower facial features, and smaller eyes.
  • A Yale study found that female scientists were not only more likely to hire male scientists but they also paid them4,000 more than female scientists.

It’s highly unlikely that the people in these studies actually wanted to pay blondes more money, enable people with mature faces to succeed at the expense of those with baby faces, or hire male scientists disproportionally and pay them more money. Our unconscious biases are often so strong that they lead us to act in ways that are inconsistent with reason as well as our values and beliefs.

Let’s explore some of the most common types of cognitive biases that entrench themselves in our lives. Awareness is the best way to beat these biases, so pay careful attention to how they influence you.

1. The decoy effect. This occurs when someone believes they have two options, but you present a third option to make the second one feel more palatable. For example, you visit a car lot to consider two cars, one listed for $ 30,000 and the other for $ 40,000. At first, the $ 40,000 car seems expensive, so the salesman shows you a $ 65,000 car. Suddenly, the $ 40,000 car seems reasonable by comparison. This salesman is preying on your decoy bias–the decoy being the $ 65,000 car that he knows you won’t buy.

2. Affect heuristic. Affect heuristic is the human tendency to base our decisions on our emotions. For example, take a study conducted at Shukutoku University, Japan. Participants judged a disease that killed 1,286 people out of every 10,000 as being more dangerous than one that was 24.14% fatal (despite this representing twice as many deaths). People reacted emotionally to the image of 1,286 people dying, whereas the percentage didn’t arouse the same mental imagery and emotions.

3. Fundamental attribution error. This is the tendency to attribute situational behavior to a person’s fixed personality. For example, people often attribute poor work performance to laziness when there are so many other possible explanations. It could be the individual in question is receiving projects they aren’t passionate about, their rocky home life is carrying over to their work life, or they’re burnt out.

4. The ideometer effect.
This refers to the fact that our thoughts can make us feel real emotions. This is why actors envision terrible scenarios, such as the death of a loved one, in order to make themselves cry on cue and activities such as cataloging what you’re grateful for can have such a profound, positive impact on your wellbeing.

5. Confirmation bias. Confirmation bias is the tendency to seek out information that supports our pre-existing beliefs. In other words, we form an opinion first and then seek out evidence to back it up, rather than basing our opinions on facts.

6. Conservatism bias. This bias leads people to believe that pre-existing information takes precedence over new information. Don’t be quick to reject something just because it’s radical or different. Great ideas usually are.

7. The ostrich effect.
The ostrich effect is aptly named after the fact that ostriches, when scared, literally bury their heads in the ground. This effect describes our tendency to hide from impending problems. We may not physically bury our heads in the ground, but we might as well. For example, if your company is experiencing layoffs, you’re having relationship issues, or you receive negative feedback, it’s common to attempt to push all these problems away, rather than to face them head on. This doesn’t work and simply delays the inevitable.

8. Reactance. Reactance is our tendency to react to rules and regulations by exercising our freedom. A prevalent example of this is children with overbearing parents. Tell a teenager to do what you say because you told them so, and they’re very likely to start breaking your rules. Similarly, employees who feel mistreated or “Big Brothered” by their employers are more likely to take longer breaks, extra sick days, or even steal from their company.

9. The halo effect. The halo effect occurs when someone creates a strong first impression and that impression sticks. This is extremely noticeable in grading. For example, often teachers grade a student’s first paper, and if it’s good, are prone to continue giving them high marks on future papers even if their performance doesn’t warrant it. The same thing happens at work and in personal relationships.

10. The horn effect.
This effect is the exact opposite of the halo effect. When you perform poorly at first, you can easily get pegged as a low-performer even if you work hard enough to disprove that notion.

11. Planning fallacy. Planning fallacy is the tendency to think that we can do things more quickly than we actually can. For procrastinators, this leads to incomplete work, and this makes type-As overpromise and underdeliver.

12. The bandwagon effect. The bandwagon effect is the tendency to do what everyone else is doing. This creates a kind of groupthink, where people run with the first idea that’s put onto the table instead of exploring a variety of options. The bandwagon effect illustrates how we like to make decisions based on what feels good (doing what everyone else is doing), even if they’re poor alternatives.

13. Bias blind spot.
If you begin to feel that you’ve mastered your biases, keep in mind that you’re most likely experiencing the bias blind spot. This is the tendency to see biases in other people but not in yourself.

Bringing It All Together

Recognizing and understanding bias is invaluable because it enables you to think more objectively and to interact more effectively with other people.

“Wood, Metal, Screw 2” Puts a Ban on Canvas – August 22, at Gabba Gallery!

“Art is very often put into categories, and the canvas dominates the art category,” explained Jason Ostro, owner of the Gabba Gallery, and co-curator of “Wood, Metal, Screw 2.” Opening on Saturday, August 22, the group exhibition celebrates alternative media, and will feature the work of forty-five artists. Ostro continues, “‘Wood, Metal, Screw 2’ is a new style art show where the medium of art on canvas is not allowed.”

2015-08-18-1439861477-4170211-1Aug222015croppedGABBAflyerWoodMetalScrew.jpg

Gabba Gallery is an up-and-coming gallery that has presented a long list of unique exhibitions since it opened in 2012. Unlike the typical gallery owner, Ostro is also a street artist. He has a diverse background that also includes fashion, music as well as art. Citing his mother as the impetus to luring him to the art world, Ostro has helped many emerging artists sell their work and is responsible for organizing numerous art shows. For this exhibition he and co-curator Phil Santos have gathered together a varied assortment of talented artists. “I’m looking for art that captures imagination, expresses happiness, love or sorrow,” said Ostro. “I want art that makes people feel!”

Since moving to Los Angeles in 2008, the Canadian born artist Jennifer Verge has immersed herself in her art as well as the LA art scene. Although it has not always been an easy road, Verge has persevered with a positive attitude, which is ever present in her art. “I am grateful to be a part of this particular show. This type of mixed media art really excites me,” said Verge. This will be her second time showing with the Gabba Gallery. “I’m really proud to be showing at this gallery. Jason the owner is amazing! He and Phil have curated fantastic shows together. With over 45 different artists the opening is going to bring a huge crowd…a guaranteed fun night.”

“Jennifer Verge is an artist with heart and love,” said Ostro. “It shows up in her work perfectly. Jennifer’s combination and use of materials to convey her messages are the perfect art for ‘Wood, Metal, Screw.'”

Verge will be showing one of her brand new works titled Some People Feel the Rain Others just Get Wet, which was inspired by a recent outing with her sister and some close friends during a rare LA rainstorm. “It’s important to surround yourself with people who live by these words.”

Verge has found inspiration in family and friends before. She incorporated the phrase “Enjoy your Life 24/7” into one of her first mixed media works to be shown at a gallery. “It was the last thing one of my favorite aunts said to me before she passed away,” she revealed. “It will always be one of my favorites.” The work sold that night – one might say it was a sign from above. http://www.jenniferverge.com/

Nathan Cartwright, probably best known as the owner/curator of the Hive Gallery. Cartwright has played an active part of the downtown art community for over ten years. Prior to owning his gallery, he curated underground art exhibitions at Hangar 1018.

For “Wood, Metal, Screw 2,” Cartwright will be showing a sculpture titled the Ladder. The above image is a photo of just one portion of the entire sculpture. He explains, “This piece illustrates the evolution and transformation of self through playful images, robotics and lights.” The multi-dimensional work is influenced by Alchemy. The artist incorporated symbols of from several religions and perhaps a bit of his own sarcasm while commenting on the destructive roles that people choose to play. The piece also celebrates transformation. “My mission is to move my viewers to a place of play and communicate about the evolution of the self,” said Cartwright.

When asked what he thought of the theme of the exhibit, he said, “I love the concept – it is basically mixed media, constructed work and this is what I love to do! Plus, I love looking for new junk and shapes and toys to make art with…it makes every trip out of my door an adventure. Who knows? You may find the perfect cabinet door to make a masterpiece on!!! http://www.artwrightstudio.com/ http://hivegallery.com/honey/

Chicago based artist Nate Otto has been creating as long as he can remember. He is known for his imagined cityscapes, which he will be showing as part of the “Wood Metal Screw” exhibition.

“For this piece I wanted to show one building set off from the rest of the city, as living in a large city can sometimes be lonely and alienating. I was thinking about Los Angeles and I wanted to show the city tapping into a dwindling water supply below. Some of the pipes don’t reach the water level.” http://nateotto.com/home.html

Jason Ostro continues to be an active implement of change and a positive force for the survival of the arts in the Rampart District (adjacent to Silverlake). In 2013, he began the Gabba Arts District Mural Tour, which is a true labor of love. To date, he is responsible for creating over eighty murals in the area. He has utilized talented artists from all over the world to better his community.

Both Ostro and Phil Santos will each have one work in “Wood, Metal, Screw” showing along with over forty artists. When asked what he loves most about curating, Ostro answered. “The energy, the art, the pulse of fresh art.” @jasonostro @philsantosart

There will be an opening reception for “Wood, Metal, Screw” on August 22 from 7-10pm at Gabba Gallery (3126 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90057). The event will feature guest DJ Jonathan Williams, and is sponsored by 7/11, Hubert’s and Perrier.

How to Not Totally Screw Up Buying Sunglasses Online

Shopping online is awesome, yeah? The days before we could fill up a virtual shopping cart and click “buy” while still curled up cozy in bed sound like dark days indeed. Still, sunglasses are the exception to the rule—a pair can look so cute on a model, but arrive on your doorstep a few days later and somehow not work, at all, when you try them on. So how is a shopper supposed to successfully buy sunglasses online? “The best rule of thumb is that opposites attract. Find frames that contrast with the shape of your face, and keep everything proportional,” Jenna McGill, The Vision Council’s marketing and communications fashion manager, told us.

celine-sunglasses-street-style

Figuring Out Your Face Shape

“The first thing you want to do is to figure out your face shape,” McGill explained, suggesting Eyecessorize’s guide if you’re not quite sure what shape you are. “Take a picture of yourself facing the camera head-on with your hair pulled back. On the photo, create dots at the brow line, cheekbones, and jaw line and compare those dots to the descriptions below.” If you’re not Photoshop savvy or don’t have a way of printing out your picture, work with your reflection. “The same process can be done by tracing your face with lipstick on a mirror.” After you’ve figured out your shape, check out the specific suggestions McGill gave us.

General Rules for a Flattering Fit

Avoiding a problem might be as simple as grabbing a measuring tape. “You want the frames to span the complete width of your face, and you don’t want to be able to see the sides of your head through the lenses,” she said. Plenty of online shops offer specific measurements with product descriptions (often listed as ‘frame width’ or ‘temple length’). Check them out and then measure your face, comparing the two numbers to get a general feel for whether the style would work on you.

How to Tell What Shape Your Face Is (and Frame Suggestions!)

You have an oval face if…: The dots that mark your cheeks are the pair that’s furthest apart; the brow and jaw lines curve slightly inward. There aren’t many frames that don’t work with this shape, so experiment with classic and trendy picks.
You have a round face if…: Like oval, your cheekbones have the most space between them; the brow and jaw lines both have a stronger curve. Rectangular and square frames are likely going to be the most flattering.
You have a square face if…: Symmetry rules and all dots are equally as far apart from each other. Try rounded or cat-eye styles.
You have a heart-shaped face if…: The dots on your brow area are the furthest apart, while the jaw line dots are the closest. The shade shapes most likely to work for you are aviators and other rimless styles.
You have an oblong face if…: Your face is long, with the most space between the dots at the brow and jaw lines. Oversized styles are likely going to be the most flattering on you.

Shape Hacks

To shorten a face: McGill suggested picking glasses with deep, narrow frames with legs that connect closer to the middle of the body (typically the pieces are joined at the upper corner).
To widen a face: Try styles with decorative, embellished temples.
To avoid overwhelming a small face: When looking at given measurements, note the ones with the shortest distance between side hinges. These will likely be your most flattering.
To lengthen a face: Rimless or wide styles can help elongate, as do styles with a high nose bridge.
To minimize a larger forehead: If you’re self-conscious about your forehead, look for glasses where the legs connect at the middle or bottom of the frame, rather than the top corner.
To make close-set eyes appear wider: Narrow frames will help center your eyes, McGill said; or, “try a clear bridge with colored temples.”
To flatter a larger nose: Shop for oversized frames with a low bridge. Per McGill, the build will focus attention on the glasses, rather than your features.
To accentuate cheekbones: “Try printed or intricate temples to draw attention to the side of the face.”

Re: Duck Dynasty: Hollywood, Go Screw Yourself

Too many people are dismissing the action of A&E at reinstating Phil Robertson so soon after suspending him from Duck Dynasty. It’s just a TV show, they say, and we have all of these wins on marriage equality — and look at Utah!

But this is not about, “Oh, we’re ‘winning,’ so who cares about Duck Dynasty? As long as our so-called “friends” in Hollywood promote and tolerate this kind of hate for money, we’ve not won much.

Tomorrow they’ll throw an AIDS benefit to assuage their guilt, or come out and say some wonderful things about LGBT people, while making millions of dollars by promoting hate against us, shrouded in religious beliefs, and raising America’s kids on hate. And the racism they’re promoting with Phil Robertson, who posited that blacks were happier under Jim Crow, while they claim to be so inclusive and anti-racist, is appalling, and shows the height of Hollywood hypocrisy.

Challenging homophobia and racism is not just about “rights” and “winning” in courtrooms and legislatures. It’s about what culture promotes and what’s acceptable to make money on — what bigotry is clearly able to be marketed and sold to the masses who’ve been fed this crap for decades.

And in the Duck Dynasty controversy, Hollywood and it’s supposed pro-gay, anti-racist liberals allowed Sarah Palin and the right to give them “free speech” cover — when we all know this has nothing to do with free speech — to make millions of dollars off of hate. As blogger Pam Spaulding wrote, the “problem with brushing this DD flap aside as just meaningless, is the fact that corporations, with this quick slap in the face of LGBTs (and black folks) is that it’s a recognition of bigots as a demographic that must be catered to. That is no small deal, people.”
