I will try to keep this one brief. The following are my quotes from a few of the sources I’ve referenced throughout the blog.
This is a list of quotes that I think are awesome.
This is my favorite example of evidence based thinking and I think it’s one of the best quotes that I’ve read over the past few weeks.
The problem with evidence-based thinking is that it’s often not only based on the evidence. It’s also based on your own preconceptions. No two people are exactly alike. No two people are exactly alike. And it’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that “I know what I know and I know what I don’t know.” Of course, you don’t know what you don’t know.
There’s a good reason for this. When you first read an article or a book, you don’t read about the evidence, you just read about the content. That’s not evidence-based thinking, it’s just reading about “this” without thinking about “that.
Thats exactly what this site is about. Evidence-based thinking.
That’s why you should always read the body of the article before reading the evidence. You should always read the body of the article before you read the evidence. It helps you to not get caught in the trap of thinking you know what you know and you know what you dont know. As a general rule, articles that have more evidence-based references also have more evidence. The same is true of books.
There’s also a very good reason that articles that have more evidence are also more likely to be cited in the future. It’s because when an article is cited, it forces people to think about it further.
