Most professions these days require more than general intelligence. They require in addition the ability to collect, analyze and think about data. Personal life is enriched when these same skills are applied to problems in everyday life involving judgment and choice. This course presents basic concepts from statistics, probability, scientific methodology, cognitive psychology and cost-benefit theory and shows how they can be applied to everything from picking one product over another to critiquing media accounts of scientific research. Concepts are defined briefly and breezily and then applied to many examples drawn from business, the media and everyday life.

This course is great! I recommend it to anyone who wants to be able to reason better and have more capabilities in making decisions. Thank you Dr. Nisbett and Coursera for providing this course.
This is a fantastic course.
Even with two masters degrees I learnt a lot and have recommended it to my colleagues.
It should be taught to all students.
A pretty crucial look at the common fallacies and biases that influence the way we absorb information. This is highly recommended to all people.
The activities and lectures were really interesting. This is the first course that i started and completed on Coursera. So I'm super excited.
