August 23, 2018 7:00 p.m. - Cognitive Bias
Greg Skuderin will share a program to support you in transcending your blind spots with rationality and honesty. Our “point of view” can often be greatly influenced by subconscious factors. Being aware that we may have cognitive biases can help us to see the world as it is, not as we are. During the presentation, we will examine what is a cognitive bias as well as why it is important to be aware of cognitive bias. We will discuss the most common cognitive biases and how we can free ourselves from their negative effects.
A freewill offering will be received. All proceeds will be shared with Center for Inquiry.
