It is widely assumed that humans are deeply irrational and that biases and errors in human reasoning, judgment, and decision-making abound. However, evidence for some of the most widely accepted ‘flaws’ is surprisingly weak. With case studies, the talk will illustrate the importance of rational standards in understanding human cognition and it will demonstrate methodological limitations in applying them that have led to misperceptions of how rational (or not) human beings are.
