Description
Do your impulsive thoughts and actions bring only trouble? Do you often grab your head muttering "what was I thinking?" There is a reason: our first, instinctual thoughts and actions are usually irrational and self-sabotaging. Discipline Your Thoughts will tell you why and also how can you correct it.We make thinking errors on a day-to-day basis. They come naturally, thus we don't think that we think in a distorted way , however, they can have a severe negative effect on our lives. Knowing what they are and how to identify them, we can help ourselves making better choices. In what area of life? All of them: personal relationships, business choices, spending habits, health-related engagements. Our mind doesn't work the way we think it does. This book presents the scientific background of thinking errors related to behavior, social relations, and memory through the most famous psychology experiments, behavioral economics research, neuropsychology, and the author's own observations. What remains is an entertaining but practical and informative guide to discipline your thoughts. Become less irrational. This book aims to help you think about your thinking and find better solutions to your problems. *Why are first impressions so powerful and permanent? * Why do we rely on the first thought that pops into our mind? *How can certain advertisements make us open our wallet immediately? * How and why does our memory fool us on a daily basis? Again and again, we think we experience and understand the world as it is, but our thoughts are beset by everyday illusions. Discipline Your Thoughts reveals the many ways our intuition can deceive us, why we succumb to these everyday brain tricks and what we can do to inoculate ourselves against their effects. Simple, clear, and always surprising, this indispensable book will transform your decision making.Correct the errors in your thinking habits and resist falling into your mental ambushes.*Why we take bad decisions following the opinion of the masses? * How we underestimate the power of emotions in rational decisions? *Why we need instant confirmation to support our ideas?* How ego distorts the sense of reality? Less biased thinking will lead to smart decision making which leads to better relationships, financial decisions, health-related choices. Make fewer mistakes in your thinking - prevention is easier than correction. Improve your beliefs, social biases, and memory mix-ups by understanding how your brain works.
