The ways in which we fail.

From time to time we all manage to fail at whatever it is we are attempting to do. It is somewhat comforting therefore that many failures can be attributed to common cognitive processes. In this talk I will try illuminate some of the reasons we (as humans) tend to fail and our reactions to such failures. Many of these processes and biases are quite famous so many of you will know of some or even all. I hope that reminding ourselves of some of the tendencies which make us human can help to inoculate ourselves to some degree.
