I have been deeply engaged in medical decision-making and have explored general human cognitive limitations that contribute to erroneous decisions. I will address the nature of human cognitive limitations and the common human overestimation of our capabilities and performance. I will address why we so commonly make bad decisions and poor predictions. I will link these discussions to our human species success through Darwinian evolution.
