Mental Models are powerful tools, but what about a nice toolbox to house them in?

If you are a fan of Farnam Street and mental models, then this might well be for you.

You know that article with all the mental models? (This one:
…and the philosophy that for these to be of use to you, then ideally you want to have them in a “latticework” in your head?
Well, we’re going to take this fairly well recognised article, and put all of the cognitive bias models in your head.
Yes. Straight into your head, so that you have your very own latticework of models in place.
(NOTE: If you are not familiar with that article, then please click on this link:
and scroll down to the section on Human Nature & Judgement.
Then take 5 minutes to familiarise yourself with those models).


The true value in learning any mental model in the first place, (in fact the value of learning anything) is that you remember it so that you’re able to consciously recall it at will, and use it at the opportune moment.
That’s exactly what this free 1hr video above is all about.
It will put 23 models on human nature and judgement in your head, using a done-for-you memory palace and talking you through spaced repetition.
There’s some pretty cool stuff towards the end on interconnected memory palaces for larger scale personal knowledge management, but for now, I encourage you to just watch through from the beginning.

Best watched NOT on a mobile, because you really need to see what’s going on.
Even better if you watch with the screen enlarged.
So grab a cup of coffee, sit back and relax.
Perhaps also grab a pen and paper because you’re gonna be tested… and enjoy the video above.
