Mind Hacks: Challenge Your Biases to Make Better Decisions (Bias #1: Anchoring)

This one-time class covers a key psychological concept: Anchoring bias. This is the tendency to rely too heavily on the first piece of information seen. Students learn to recognize and counteract what would otherwise skew their judgment.

Class Experience

In 2020, I earned a Master’s degree in Behavioral and Decision Sciences from the University of Pennsylvania. I learned about the anchoring bias in that program. 

I have been a teacher on Outschool for over a year. I primarily teach about misinformation - what it is, why we fall for it, and how to separate fact from fiction.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
My sources include academic research from the foremost experts on this topic – scholars from Columbia University, University of Pennsylvania, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, University of Würzburg, University of Cologne, University of Utah, and more.
