The Art of Clear Thinking will change your mind about your decisions.

Are you as smart as you think you are? We often think: that everything we decide is well thought out and guided by reason without much dependence on feelings or influence from others. But the reality is the opposite; let’s discover 99 basic mistakes in thinking that you need to avoid to make quick and accurate decisions.

Consisting of 99 chapters, it is a collection of stories, the author’s analysis of the common mistakes people make, specific examples that you can easily recognize, and advice to others. you to avoid the same mistakes. “The art of healthy thinking” will change hard-to-remove biases, helping you to decide more effectively and wisely.The Art of Thinking Clearly: Dobelli, Rolf: 9780062219695: Amazon.com: Books

Each chapter of the book is no more than three pages long but brings a lot of knowledge; from experiments done or real-life experiences taking place every day, you can realize seemingly simple thoughts but become a hindrance to most of the decisions you make.

“The Art of Thinking Clearly” lists many stories and specific analyses to show that we make many basic mistakes. For example, you have less control than you think. We roll the dice hard and light thinking we can control the score, but in reality, you can’t handle this matter don’t expect too much to avoid disappointment; try to practice focusing on what you can grasp.

The “art of thinking clearly” also says that many people are overconfident. People often think their success is due to their ability and intelligence, but if they fail, it is the fault of the circumstances or objective reasons. This is evidenced by the book’s personality test results on self-bias.

An excellent book to read

The book also offers many exciting examples of the most basic errors in thinking that we often do not consider. Many people may rush to buy a cosmetic product advertised by a beautiful model thinking that they can become like them, but not thinking that because they are already beautiful, they are chosen to promote that product. Or choose to buy products advertised by your favourite person, which is your subconscious influence, or caused by “favourite bias”.

Or like the “lost cost fallacy” mentality, when you try to invest time, money, and affection in something because it’s already funded, you have to continue; anyway, it’s gone. As the investment grows more extensive, this can become dangerous. You look at the story of an ordinary man who becomes a billionaire after the acquisition and tries to figure out why they can invest so precisely. In reality, it’s just random; even if there is a trick, it is just a coincidence.

Keep in mind the saying “We are not able to accurately predict our own emotions” in the book and be careful what you wish for, the short-lived emotions when you achieve one of your goals. The desire may not be the true happiness you are aiming for. If there is nothing to say, don’t brag, it’s just an act to hide your stupidity or endless ideas.

When it comes to the success of a company or an individual, people often look for a specific reason for success or failure. Still, the reality is that hundreds of thousands of causes can contribute to success. or loss of an individual or group. The book also mentions many other examples that readers can learn more about when reading and infer about everyday situations in their own lives.

Like the book’s title, the author helps us to have a clear, logical way of thinking without making common mistakes that people often make. For example, for start-ups to become rich, the success rate is only a minimal number in the graveyard of those who fail. (Posted science)
