Big Data Says Everybody Lies

Your Intuition is Lying to You Throughout our daily lives and away from high tech, the vast majority of people make decisions and dish out advice based on their gut. Over their lives, they have assimilated a humongous amount of data which is safely kept in their brain allowing them to draw conclusions to problems.

This, however, poses a number of problems: 1. All the observations you have (data points) are from your point of view. Meaning you will be seeing a limited picture. 2. Your brain changes memories over time There is only so much you can remember. Take for example basketball. You might have heard that a growing up poor assists in making you a great NBA star.
