Do you use your brain in the right way? 


The human brain is constantly evolving, but this evolution is excruciatingly slow. Abilities that once helped us escape sabre-toothed tigers are not nearly as useful in an office or in a traffic jam. Despite this, our brains keep opting for the Stone Age reaction of fight or flight. Meanwhile, the abilities we could really use in modern life often escape us. 


In this course, you will get acquainted with the cornerstones of thinking, such as logic, correlation, and reasoning under uncertainty. We will focus on some common mistakes our brains make, and we will provide you with tools you can use to avoid them. This is the perfect course for anyone who wants to become a better and more rational decision maker and improve their understanding of the brain and thought processes.
