Misconception/Truth

 

Blog to check out:  Journalist David McRaney takes in-depth looks at lots of psych-related questions on You Are Not So Smart.  Each long post begins with a common misconception and a corrective truth, with research to back it up.  From a post about hindsight bias:

The Misconception: After you learn something new, you remember how you were once ignorant or wrong.

The Truth: You often look back on the things you’ve just learned and assume you knew them or believed them all along.

Enjoy.
