Cognitive Biases Codex

The four categories of our list come from Buster Benson’s work


We want to give a special shout out to Buster Benson. He did an impressive job with the categorization of cognitive biases which led him to build a massive Codex.

The four categories of this list are based on his research, so we want to make sure he gets the credit for this hard work.

Buster Benson

Every single person, including myself, has many implicit associations that lead to bias that they can’t fully eradicate in themselves. It’s more effective to accept that fact, and account for it by being transparent about it, than to try to hide it.
