Scott Adams of Dilbert fame has recently published a book called, How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big: Kind of the Story of My Life. In it, he talks about a list Psychological traps that can manipulate you. I like lists. To me, a list is a short cut to learning. So here is Scott’s list of mind games that you should be aware of and how they work against you in becoming successful. I’ve linked each term to it’s Wikipedia article. Learn away!
Wow, I am so messed up. Oh and you are too.
BTW, I wasn’t a huge fan of this book. I think it is neither terribly funny, interesting or insightful. However, it did have it’s rare moments.
