How scientists fool themselves

How scientists fool themselves


Bias and cognitive fallacies. These are the most dangerous traps that a scientist should avoid. The journal Nature published a must-read article entitled “How Scientists Fool Themselves – and How They Can Stop“, and it brings a nice infographic that should be printed and placed at plain sight in all laboratories in the world right now.


There must be a law on that, or something like a How-scientists-fool-themselves Day, when all scientists should look at this infographic for at least one hour, in a profound and thoughtful silence or chanting “mea culpa”.

All hail this infographic!!!How scientists fool themselves
