Cognitive Bias Database

Part of Neurofied’s openly available behavioral science tools

Below you will find a simplified version of the cognitive bias database we use internally at Neurofied. You can learn more about cognitive biases in a practical context on our blog (cognitive bias category) but here is an overview of 200+ predictably irrational patterns in human thinking and decision-making.

We are aware that this database is most useful in the hands of behavioral specialists but decided to open-source this as it might help you in your mastery of brain and behavior.

In this cognitive bias database, you will find:

  • Bias name
  • Bias description
  • Related cognitive biases
  • Cause (simplified neuroscientific explanation)
  • Sub-cause (specification of explanation)
