Micro Learnings


Both rationale and emotions relate to the decision-making process of human beings. This automatically implies that both ratio and feelings impact our actions or behaviour. Psychological aspects, including mental traps, can impact a professional’s performance, as well as one’s attitude. The decision-making process of human beings is optimised by various natural strategies. Heuristics are examples of these; they are cognitive strategies. Framing concerns another mental strategy to optimise the decision-making process. Other anomalies lead to the same. All these cognitive biases impact our behaviours.
