We are human. All of us a mixture of emotions and rationality. From the time we were born to now, our brains, thought patterns, personality, and intuition have been developing from alchemy of our DNA, experiences, education, and life lessons. And, as much as we think we are objective rational thinkers and decision makers, often we are looking through biased eyes, either fueled by our emotions, or driven by our misguided framing of a situation, and most of the time we don’t even know it.
