Hi Evanthia – Yes, loved your visualization and I think it will be very helpful going forward.  There are WAY too many ‘biases’ floating around, so it is wonderful to see a taxonomy that simplifies our understanding of the different flavors and how they are related.  Using the ‘task’ framework seems very appropriate, and also helps in bringing to mind the different categories.  The cognitive biases are front-and-center in our field of trying to understand and address diagnostic errors in medicine, so we are talking about these all the time.

Right, the ‘codex’ is the work of Buster Benson and John Manoogian.  Sorry if my wording implied that it was yours.  I was a little surprised that you didn’t mention it.  Anyway, I have a framed copy of their ‘codex’ on my wall, and I gather there is some market for these things.   I hope you are thinking to develop a poster version of your taxonomy as well ;<)

Dear Dr. Graber,

Thank you very much for suggesting our taxonomy article as an interesting to you reading. As a side note, the web link (https://www.designhacks.co/products/cognitive-bias-codex-poster<https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=8&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwj8neaN4PTdAhXtmuAKHXWvCR8QFjAHegQIBxAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.designhacks.co%2Fproducts%2Fcognitive-bias-codex-poster&usg=AOvVaw1tnwztXO_WzPSW0pDj_aIx>)) is not ours. It is attributed to a blogger  -- if I am not mistaken -- named Buster Benson.

Kind Regards,

Evanthia Dimara
