Most of us assume that our brains think in a sensible and logical way. However, in reality, psychologists have found that the human brain has a tendency to make certain mistakes when thinking, and these can make one think in very illogical ways. Such “thinking mistakes” can make you make wrong judgments in your daily life and can even cause you to be unhappy.

Thinking mistakes are very common and can happen to anyone, however clever one may think one is! This website explains, in a very easy to understand way, common types of thinking mistakes that we all make. This will help you to recognise and correct such mistakes when they happen to you.
