Most of us assume that our brains think in a sensible and logical way. However, in reality, psychologists have found that the human brain has a tendency to make mistakes when thinking and this can result in us thinking in certain “stupid” ways. It is important to become aware of such “stupid thinking” as it can make us make wrong judgments and decisions in our daily lives.

This free website explains, in a very easy to understand way, common types of stupid thinking that our brains may do. This will help you to recognise and change such thinking when it happens in your own brain.

Stupid thinking can happen to anyone, however clever one may think one is! As you read through this website, you will recognise such thinking all around you. Once you have knowledge about the different types of stupid thinking, you will soon find yourself thinking in better ways.
