Reality-Based Thinking Quiz
Are you surprised with your quiz results? You’re a smart person, right? And yet the statistics say that you probably got at least one of these problems wrong, if not all four. That is, the answers you gave simply did not jibe with realityWhen we say reality, we mean: the state of things as they actually exist, as opposed to an idealistic or notional idea of them.
We missed most of these questions, too—and just like you, we were surprised to learn that our everyday thinking was not always based in reality. So that’s why we started the Society for Reality-Based Thinking—to help people learn to avoid the common errors we all tend to make. Reality-Based Thinking (RBT) is not all that hard to do, and once you get the hang of it, you realize that the whole world could make good use of it. But for now, let us suggest a much more modest goal: What if you could improve your own judgment and decision making enough to cut down your errors to 50% of their current level? How much time, money, heartbreak, and frustration would that save you?
We believe that RBT can do just that for you—provided you put forth the effort to learn it and to use it. You can try more problems here at any time. But please be sure to read next about how messed-up the world’s thinking is!
