“Critical Thinking”: This word attracted me towards this workshop. As soon as the name of the Workshop was announced, from that very moment I was thinking to shift to this workshop and finally I did.
On the very first day of our workshop, I came to know that our thoughts depend on our biases. After getting the list of biases, it was too overwhelming for me to go through all the biases and finding one for me. After going through the list, finally I was able to find a bias for me that is “Bias blind spot”. Link is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bias_blind_spot .
It is a type of Cognitive bias and when I started making connection with this bias I realized that many times my thoughts and decisions get affected by this bias. This workshop has helped me in thinking critically in my day-to-day life. Still I am in process of finding out other biases for me and make connections with them.
I would like to thank Vardan Sir for taking this workshop and this journey of learning.
