PostSubject: A neuroscientist says you might be luckier than you think -- here's how to find out   Sat Jan 27, 2018 10:34 pm

Some days, it feels like nothing goes your way. Others, the sun is always shining.



Neuroscientist Moran Cerf has been studying decision-making for over a decade, and his research has shown him that far more people are in the second camp of people than the first.

Along the way, he's developed a tested method that helps him appreciate all the times he is lucky.

Here's how he does it.
Become aware of your "negativity bias."

Cerf's research has found that free choice is a terrible predictor for happiness. Humans fall victim to all sorts of cognitive biases that cloud their impression of their lives for the worse.

One of those is the negativity bias. It causes people to remember bad or scary events, such as news stories of plane crashes, more vividly than pleasant ones.

"Our brains are geared toward thinking about negativity and scary things, because that's how the brain kind of learns," Cerf told Business Insider.
