FYI …..Attached is a new systematic review of “debiasing” from both medical and non-medical literature.   Most studies found that various debiasing techniques were successful, for example by ‘considering the opposite’.

Several individuals, myself included, have advocated that using an approach like “What else could this be?” would be useful in combatting diagnostic errors related to premature closure, inappropriate anchoring, framing effects, and other tendencies.  Although the article doesn’t mention this particular debiasing approach, the generally positive findings for debiasing in general seems to be a positive thing.
