Most of us don’t see the world as it truly is, because we sift inputs through a mental filter that favors dramatic information. Generally, people believe that the world is getting worse, when facts and data show that the world is getting better. An exaggerated and overly-negative view of the world creates unnecessary fear/stress, and results in poor decisions based on the wrong facts/impressions. This book helps us to understand the 10 dramatic instincts that distort our perspectives, and learn how to develop a fact-based worldview to reduce stress and improve our ability to make sound decisions.
In this summary, you’ll learn:
• To understand the 10 “dramatic instincts” that all human beings have, and how they create the wrong perceptions of the world around us;
• The facts and statistics of the true state of our world today, including poverty, education, health etc., and what it means for businesses and individuals;
• How to recognize and manage the 10 dramatic instincts, so you can develop a more accurate, fact-based worldview, develop better solutions and make better decisions.
