3. THE IMPACT BIAS:

Thanks/Praise to God

3. THE IMPACT BIAS:

>”People often overestimate their emotional reaction to future events.”

Examples:
Sometimes people are not as happy as they expected to be when something they thought would make them happy happens.

Also the opposite can be true: sometimes when something bad happens, people don’t feel as bad about it as they expected they would.

HOW TO COMBAT THE IMPACT BIAS:

>”First, consciously widen your focus; remember that other events are bound to intervene.

Second, remember that rationalism tends to reduce the emotional impact of both positive and negative events.

The future doesn’t normally have such an extreme effect on our emotions (whether good or bad) as we imagine.

4. THE MEMORY BIAS:

Thanks for your time!!!
