#BrainFactMonday โ€“ Your Brain Can Predict The Future

Posted on 17th July 2023

Are you aware that your brain holds an extraordinary capability to predict future events? It's time to take advantage of that! In this #BrainFactMonday you'll learn the specific brain process responsible for predictions and discover how to avoid the bias trap. Here's the key:

Deep within the intricate network of our brains lies the Bayesian inference mechanismโ€”a cognitive process that helps us predict outcomes based on prior knowledge and experiences. It's like having a personal crystal ball to foresee what lies ahead.

To truly leverage this innate ability, we must cultivate cognitive flexibilityโ€”an unusual perspective that encourages us to question our own biases and preconceived notions. This allows us to see beyond the surface and consider alternative possibilities, enhancing the accuracy of our predictions.
