My Mind's Wellness for Fort Lauderdale


I'm Daniel Comp. I'm the author and curator of the Scotomaville Series.

Let's think about scotomas and cognitive biases for a moment. They have everything to do with mind wellness.

You and I share defects called scotomas. We have both visual and mental blind spots. All mammals have them. Unfortunately, we don't see things the way THEY are. We see things the way WE are. And, we're a hundred percent wrong fifty percent of the time. We don't know why we do what we do (WWDWWD). That's a scotoma. It's a blind spot.

Buster Benson did a fabulous job digesting 188 cognitive biases into four ideas. You can change your mind by thinking about why you do what you do with the parameters our brain was created with or has evolved to solve:


ONE - make sense of chaos

TWO - find a pattern

THREE - conserve resources (like calories that fuel thinking)

FOUR - hurry!

Those demands result in disastrous thinking. We jump to conclusions to save energy. We do so quickly because we've seen a similar pattern in the past (like a tiger).

We're immersed in chaos, so four simple things make us 100% wrong 50% of the time. Unfortunately - our biology and psychology insist otherwise, and that is a pattern called a habit.
