...but whatever your score, you likely felt the pull of the availability bias, a blindspot that tricks you into thinking that things that come to mind more easily are more frequent or true. Of course, this isn’t always the case... but our brains don’t seem to know that.

The availability bias influences how we evaluate all kinds of things, from mundane trivia to the most talked-about headlines.

So when you’re faced with an important decision in life or at work, remember to ask yourself: Is the information I'm using true or just more available? and then rely on real evidence to make your choice.
