Here Are 4 Mental Shortcuts That Can Cloud Our Judgement
Being a human isn’t an easy task. We often focus only on our exterior shell, but we forget about the wonders hidden on the inside. The human body is more complex than a computer. It is made out of tiny particles that form the cells that later form the tissues and organs to create the perfection that is the human organism. But in reality, we’re not all that perfect.
What makes us different than just a random plastic object is that every second in our body there are a million of things happening all at once. Deep within our cells, the nucleus communicates with other organelles to keep the cell functioning. On a higher level, cells communicate with the ones surrounding them, organs communicate between themselves via blood and above everything else, the brain communicates with each and every particle in the body through hormones. Hormones give the orders to move a muscle, create a new cell, to feel happy and to feel sad. It is constantly happening, so the brain has devised a few shortcuts based on experience.
Basically, what this means is that if something happens, we jump to the conclusion based on what our brain tells us that has happened before and is the norm. But what if that’s not the case? What if those shortcuts lead us to misinterpret situations and make faulty decisions? Take a look at this video to understand why the human mind is imperfect.
