I am very sorry, but there is an error in the website, One Year of Wisdom. This will take a few days to sort. Meanwhile please enjoy this website. Sorry and thank you.

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, making us think in ways that make no sense. Such “brain mistakes” can happen without one even realising it and can lead to one making wrong judgments and decisions in one’s daily life.

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

Click on the button below to start reading. I am confident that once you understand the various brain mistakes, you will find yourself thinking in better ways.
