What We Need To Know
There’re a lot of organizations which can benefit from fear. So, they promote it. These are politicians, companies, media, and so on. Our thought consists of head and gut. Head is reasonable, but most of the time, we don’t believe head. We believe gut which does not often give us the right answer. Gut also suffers from many psychological symptoms such as bias, group polarization, anchoring rule, good-bad rule, example rule, rule of typical thing, and so on. These symptoms contribute to our overestimation and underestimation of risks, and cloud our judgement.
