Louie, this is a brilliant reversal on the usual warnings we get against our confirmation biases. I think you are absolutely right that it can help us enormously and I've never heard this spin on it before. I guess becoming more conscious of those biases and employing them with intention is the trick. Thanks

Nice article Louie. I had a case of frequency illusion when my wife was pregnant. It felt like the world was being taken over by pregnant women. They were everywhere. Then the same after the baby came. All of the sudden the pregnant women disappeared and the world was taken over by strollers and babies. 😂

Love the way you re-framed these. I’d suggest the treatment works for ADHD and OCD too, which I suspect are simply features of high-performance intellects

This is an illusion that a lot of people mistake for “magic” (The Secret, Law of Attraction etc). Charlatans are great at exploiting it to the maximum.
