Decision-Making Biases

I was fascinated by this Wikipedia list of decision-making and behavioral biases, with links to each one (including references!) like the
Planning Fallacy.

Update: Mutual Improvement deconstructed a suspect study connecting alcohol consumption and higher incomes with another list of cognitive biases taken from Wikipedia.

Update 2: I was looking through a list of del.ici.ous links on decision making and found this article: 10 reasons people make stupid decisions -- it's funny and references some solid background material.

TOO cool...and wouldn't it be neat to bury one in "Leaf fallacy"...the belief that your team will win the stanley cup every year.

HA haha...I love it. Thank goodness we are able to delude ourselves in that particular way.
