some of your biases could be causing you financial harm

  • present bias: tendency to overvalue immediate smaller rewards at the expense of long-term goals
  • base rate neglect: tendency to ignore the probability of something happening and instead judge its likelihood by new, readily available information
  • overconfidence: tendency to overweigh one’s own abilities or information when making an investment decision
  • loss aversion: tendency to be excessively fearful of experiencing losses relative to gains
