Mobile App Europe 2014 Notes
A Common Misconception:
Psychology derives trait from observing behaviour. - Wrong!
Psychological research does the opposite:
“What is the probability for a behaviour given a trait?”
Psychological Effect size
Difference/distance between averages
Why do we think that we are right? -
Because we want to be right. We’re hard wired for that.
Tendency to neglect information that disconfirms our believe: We look for evidence that supports our thinking, we do not look for disconfirm.
Where do I seek for confirm:
You want to look good
Shield us from negative feedback
Cognition - information processing
when we monitor it -> Metacognition - can control cognition Metacognition: how do we think how good we are
People don’t see their cognitive inabilities, they need feedback
Metacognitive Training: align metacognition and cognition
