Cognitive Bias, Logical thinking, NLP !

One of the first lessons we learn in NLP – NEURO-LINGUISTIC PROGRAMMING is about what is termed as Cognitive Bias.

cognitive bias is a mistake in reasoning, evaluating, remembering, 
or other cognitive process, often occurring as a result of holding 
onto one's preferences and beliefs regardless of contrary information.Psychologists 
study cognitive biases as they relate to memory, reasoning, 
and decision-making.

Cognitive biases are mentioned by NLP practitioners, trainers as flaws in logical thinking that are considered responsible for bad decisions, and they say that learning about these can reduce errors in the thought process, leading to a more successful life.

Cognitive Bias vs. Logical Fallacy. … A logical fallacy stems from an error in a logical argument, while a cognitive bias is rooted in thought processing errors often arising from problems with memory, attention, attribution, and other mental mistakes.

These biases are very closely said to be related to logical fallacies, which may help win an argument or present information better.

They classify Biases at Cognitive Level as  –Some have defined 12 and others 25.:

1)Anchoring Bias

2)Availability Heuristic bias

3)Bandwagon Bias

4)Choice Supportive Bias

5)Confirmation Bias

6)Ostrich Bias

7)Outcome Bias


9)Placebo bias

10)Survivorship Bias

11)Selective Perception Bias

12)Blind Spot Bias

Forgive the past, It is Over! Great quote below:

Today’s Inspirational Quote:“Forgive the past. It is over. Learn from it and let go. People are constantly changing and growing. Do not cling to a limited, disconnected, negative image of a person in the past. See that person now. Your relationship is always alive and changing.”

— Brian Weiss

Great message indeed. I am an advocate of NOT CLINGING TO PAST BAGGAGE or BAGASSE’.  I believe in throwing it will all our might in the sky from where it does never return.

I also believe in Forgive ….. no not forget… I still have some past memories that I can not forget but they remain with me as learnings and I quote them transparently as my failures, my learnings, and experience to my mentees (masking names or any reference which will reveal People’s identities. I believe in Top Secret Confidentiality while dealing with mentees or people who come for coaching/ consulting.  It is very important to maintain this as it keeps the TRUST sustainable and trust for me is Binary – Trust or No Trust.  I do not attach Degrees, or percentages to Trust. That’s my nature.
