Negativity bias: Why you feel down when good things are happening
In the one of the worst years of our generation, how can we work to combat our negative bias?
Negativity bias is especially relevant in the landmark year of 2020 because it causes our emotional response to negative events to feel amplified compared to similar positive events.
This bias is very easily mixed up with Loss Aversion; I’ll contrast these in the future.
👉 I hope you had a wonderful holiday season. I encourage you to try to make room for some gratitude and mindfulness over the new year.
