50 Hidden Influences Impacting Your Decisions [Infographic]

The Ultimate List of Influences Distorting How You See Reality

We All Make Choices,
But In The End Our Choices Make Us.

-Ken Levine

One of the most important factors to achieving success in life is making good decisions.

Good decisions = a better life
Poor decisions = a regret filled life

Kind of hard to argue with that.

But, here’s the problem: There are hidden factors distorting every decision you make—even the ones carefully made.

Hidden below the surface of every situation requiring a decision are 100+ different distortions, called cognitive bias, that are pushing and pulling you every which waybut you can’t see them.

Even worse, they distort your perception of reality.

  • Your perception of yourself
  • How you perceive others
  • Your perception of “the facts”
  • How you perceive the past
  • How you look at the future
  • Your perception of your current situation

This thorough (5 full PDF pages!), informative reference reveals all sorts of distortions. For example:

  • Framing Effect – You can draw radically different conclusions from the same information, depending on how it is presented.
  • IKEA Effect – You place a disproportionately higher value on things you personally create or contribute to.
  • Mere Exposure Effect – Increased favorability toward things merely because you are familiar with them.
  • Zero Risk Bias – Prefer reducing a small risk to zero over a greater reduction in a larger risk.
  • Illusory Correlation Bias– Inaccurately seeing a cause/effect relationship toward random events.
  • Hindsight Bias – Tendency to filter the memory of past events through present knowledge (“I knew it all along” distortion).
