Thinking about thinking edit

To form a theory means to modify your preliminary understanding of a topic to meet the requirements, which should be the requirements to describe reality with sufficient accuracy. Unfortunately the wrong requirements are often applied, which means the understanding may be modified to confirm prejudices or to meet the requirements of other elements of small talk. One could probably describe that as a frequent cognitive bias.

Your own theory of thinking edit

Describe your own theory of thinking and learning. The theory should include memory effects, learning methods and how they affect the learning results.

  • Does your own theory describe any relevant cognitive bias?
  • Does your theory allow to evaluate learning strategies?
