    Unrelated and unpredictable factors can have an alarming impact on human judgment.

    To get a better grasp on the random and strange nature of the kind of noise we’re talking about here, let’s imagine you’re a high school senior, and you and your best friend are self-professed academic nerds. You’ve both earned straight As, nailed the SATs, and landed admissions interviews at the same Ivy League university.

    You go to your interview and everything goes swimmingly. Your high marks impress the admissions officer and you cross the campus back to your car feeling great, the sun on your face and a cool breeze at your back.

    Your friend has her appointment with the same admissions officer on the following day. Just like for you, her interview is a smooth ride. But when she leaves, the rain clouds that have gathered all afternoon break open into a downpour.

    Weeks pass, and you each receive a letter from the admissions office. Turns out, they’ve rejected you but accepted your friend. Your mind reels. Why? What does she have that you don’t?

    Here’s the first key message: Unrelated and unpredictable factors can have an alarming impact on human judgment.

    According to a 2003 paper evocatively titled “Clouds Make Nerds Look Good” by behavioral scientist Uri Simonsohn, the weather might have made the difference. Simonsohn discovered that on cloudier days, college admissions officers pay more attention to grades and scores.

    On sunnier days, on the other hand, admissions officers are more sensitive to nonacademic qualities, meaning that on the day of your interview, the officer might have been more interested in athletics and artistic talent than straight As and SAT scores.

    Then again, perhaps the admissions officer’s decision had nothing to do with the weather at all, and more to do with the interviewees that preceded you. Perhaps those students were great candidates, and the admission officer just didn’t want to go on an acceptance streak.

    But wait. Other irrelevant factors may also have influenced the decision. The admissions officer might have been hungry; he may have felt that sunny day was too hot, despite the air conditioning in the office; his hometown football team might have just lost an important game. Researchers have shown that each of these irrelevant factors can affect the decisions of bank loan officers, baseball umpires, physicians, and judges.

    Importantly, in all of these scenarios, one person repeatedly confronts substantially the same situation, yet makes different judgments. Researchers call this variability occasion noise, and it’s one of the major categories of noise. But it’s not the only one.

    Worum geht es in Noise?

    Noise (2021) is an exploration into the chaotic and costly role that randomness plays in human judgment. By uncovering the mechanisms behind how our minds and societies work, the authors show how noise – unwanted variability in decisions – is both inescapable and elusive. We can, however, with a few solid strategies, make our judgments less noisy and our world fairer.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll
