Description from store A cognitive bias explained every time you open a new tab. Cognitive biases affect everything we do. Amongst other things, they make us spend impulsively, be overly influenced by what other people think. They change our beliefs, our opinions, and our decisions, and we have no idea it is happening. When we are aware of our biases, it is sometimes possible, to estimate the bias and then modify our behaviour. This procedure is called bias correction, and this is the reason why we built this extension. Inspired by the Cognitive Bias Codex by DesignHacks.co. List of biases mostly by Wikipedia. Update If you're looking for a more advanced plugin, get a Cognitive Bias, Mental Model or Dark Pattern explained every time you open a new tab from BrainyTab.com. It also gives you an amazing way to save and manage bookmarks easily (super fast search included).

  • (2019-03-25) Kevin Desai: Its a good app. Its missing a dark mode and a favorites/save feature.
  • (2019-03-25) Really interesting content in an incredibly digestible format - thanks guys :-D
  • (2019-03-25) Ionela Spinu: Absolutely love it!! Find myself opening a tab just so I can check on another bias :) Great idea and it's such a clever way to remind us how utterly biased we are and we're not always aware of it.
  • (2019-03-23) Wyatt Rich: The only thing this is missing is a dark mode (hopefully by default); so you are not blinded every time you open a new tab at night
  • (2019-03-22) Amin J: Works well, great idea, and very informative
  • (2019-03-22) Cosmin Cimpoi: Good stuff to keep in mind...
  • (2019-03-20) A nice extension which makes my day that little bit more interesting and fun. Thank you for building this
  • (2019-03-20) Robert Schuman: Also found out about this via Hacker News. The extension generates a nicely formatted landing page. I also feel a low barrier to entry in learning more about cognitive biases throughout my work day since only a single term is provided each time a new tab is opened. Well done!
