Mind mistakes

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, making one think in ways that make no sense. These “thinking mistakes” made by one’s brain can result in one making wrong judgments and decisions in one’s daily life. One may not even realise that one’s brain is thinking in these ways. This completely free website explains, in a very easy to understand way, common types of thinking mistakes that one’s brain may make. This will help you to recognise such thinking in yourself and change how you think.
