How To Combat Normalcy Bias In Yourself And Others | episode 139
The question of how to combat normalcy bias came up in a thread on the Survival Punks Group. Out of all the questions asked I wanted to tackle this one first.
Normalcy bias is defined by Wikipedia as:
“The normalcy bias, or normality bias, is a mental state people enter when facing a disaster. It causes people to underestimate both the possibility of a disaster and its possible effects, because it causes people to have a *bias* to believe that things will always function the way things *normally* function.”
Basically, it’s putting your head in the sand.
It can happen to yourself and those around you.
In today’s episode, I talk about how to combat it both in yourself and those around you.
