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 certain mistakes when thinking and this can make one think in very illogical ways. Such “stupid thinking” can make one make wrong judgments and decisions in one’s daily life. Stupid thinking is extremely common and it happens in everyone, though most of us would not even realise that we are thinking in these ways.

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