Oz Chen is my friend and go-to person when it comes to meta-cognition, which for normal people means “thinking about thinking.” Oz has been blogging on and off for twenty years, writes professionally, and dives into the intersection of psychology and finance at ozchen.com. In this episode we tackle mental models, cognitive biases, silly mistakes otherwise smart people make, and the big kahuna, thinking about thinking. This includes how to maintain an open mind without fooling yourself, and marriage to ideology.
