Widen your focus
We can’t take in and process ALL the information around us. Scientist estimated that we are exposed to up to 11 million pieces of information and any one time. But our brains can only functionally deal with around 40.
How do we counteract the negative impact of unconscious bias?
We all suffer from unconscious bias. Most of the time we operate on autopilot – relying on deep-in-the-brain biases, preferences and assumptions that operate largely automatically.
While these mental shortcuts help us make decision quickly and with little effort they can have unintended consequences, including irrational thinking and faulty decision making. When people are involved, bias can result in stereotyping, prejudice and a lack of diversity and a multitude of problems at work.
