Programs that help you improve your understanding of the world:
The Belief Challenger: Over the course of our lives, we each develop a unique worldview — a set of strongly-held opinions that we use to make sense of the world around us. The individual viewpoints that make up this worldview matter a great deal. They determine our behavior, affect the way we interact with other people, and define who we are. It's therefore incredibly important that we develop the most accurate set of viewpoints that we can. The Belief Challenger is designed to help you reflect on your deeply-held beliefs — and, in doing so, improve upon them. Click here to try it.
Probabilistic Fallacies — Gauging The Strength Of Evidence: Have you ever felt absolutely certain that you were right about something, only to discover that you were wrong? If so, there's a good chance that you misinterpreted the evidence. Using evidence to update your understanding of the world constitutes the core of rational thought, but it's not always easy to determine exactly how a fresh piece of information should affect your perspective. This mini-course will teach you a simple method for interpreting evidence accurately — it's based on powerful statistical principles, but requires no math to use. Click here to learn more.
Explanation Freeze – Interpreting Uncertain Events: Evolution has given us a default tendency to come up with just one explanation for the events we observe — especially events for which there's no single, obvious cause. But the first explanation we come up with frequently isn't the best one. When we fixate on that first explanation to the exclusion of other possibilities, we suffer from Explanation Freeze. This mini-course will teach you a simple habit of mind that can help you control this tendency and react more flexibly to uncertain circumstances. As a result, you'll be more prepared for the complicated situations life throws at you. Click here to learn more.
