Deep Dives are carefully hand-curated series of time-tested articles and videos from around the web.

We’ll guide you through, one link per day, in the app or in your inbox.

Deep Dives come in bites that are short enough to fit in your day...

...but add up to a satisfying learning experience.

Congratulations on completing this Deep Dive! With strong mental models and an awareness of cognitive biases comes better thinking. Decision-making is akin to a muscle, make sure to use these new tools so they turn into thinking habits.

In order to keep on adding to your thinking toolbox, you may want to read «50 Great Myths of Popular Psychology», which debunks common misconceptions about the mind, or «The Brain», a very short book by Oxford University Press.
