📚 3 Good Articles for You

The Psychology of Human Misjudgment
by Charles T. Munger (17 mins)

  • R.I.P. Charlie Munger. We learned a lot from your thoughts and words, and respect your digital legacy left behind to the world. All people must die, and once they pass away, we can no longer access their knowledge. This is one of the biggest problems that remains unsolved. Let us work on creating something that allows people to leave their learning behind, making it accessible eternally.
  • Extensive Rewrite and Behavioral Finance Foundations: Charles T. Munger's "The Psychology of Human Misjudgment" underwent a significant overhaul, incorporating new material and insights to reflect his latest thoughts on behavioral finance, a field he pioneered, which focuses on the patterns of rational and irrational human behavior.
  • Exploration of Psychological Tendencies and Their Impacts: The work delves into various psychological tendencies, such as incentive-caused bias and inconsistency-avoidance, illustrating how these factors drive human decision-making and behavior in real-world scenarios, from corporate settings to military strategies.
