How our minds can fool us

This video talks about cognition. One of the things that it mentions is prototypes and how we all have a specific vision in our mind about things that are said. Like if he said bird, we would automatically picture a type of song bird instead of something like a penguin. He talks about trial and error and how its not the best way to solve problems even though it works. He also talks about algorithms and heuristics.He also talks about confirmation bias and how most of the time we are overconfident in our answers. Problem solving is very complex and there are many different ways to problem solve in different situations.
