2. Emotional Obstacles to Doing Good
If you want to make the world a better place, emotions can both help and hinder your progress. Use this tool to recognize how emotions can instinctively challenge your goals – and how to overcome these challenges!
This learning module will teach you:
Why you might have reasons to be skeptical about relying entirely on your emotions as guidance for how to help other people.
Four emotion-based cognitive biases that present challenges to helping as many people as possible (these biases all stem from disconnects between beliefs we likely hold and our emotional instincts).
How these four biases detach feeling good about a particular action or decision from actually doing good.
How you can overcome these biases, and what might prevent you from doing so.
Along the way, you’ll get the chance to explore your own reactions to these biases through interactive questions. We’ll also provide you with a list of resources to tackle these emotion-based biases out in the world!
