« back to classes page
In this session we will explore what predisposes human beings to believe things that probably aren't so.  Cognitive psychologists point to certain predictable flaws in our logic that pave the way for endorsing cause-effect relationships that don't stand up to scientific testing. We'll explore strategies for testing beliefs in the interest of making human less vulnerable to scams.
