I was raised to model my thinking on the scientific method. But it wasn't until College that I began to identify as a skeptical thinker. This occurred after being introduced to political philosophy and most poignantly, the allegory of the cave. Then in grad school, I was introduced to advanced research methodologies and exposed to the field of decision making (primarily, game theory variations). Once hired as an analyst my education continued with yearly training in critical thinking and writing. Moving from California to England, to Israel, and to Seattle was wonderful; but moving to Utah has been challenging. The prevalence of non-methodological thinking is suffocating here and I wish to be around skeptical thinkers yet again.
I am an analyst in Salt Lake City, Utah. I received my undergrad in California and my grad degree in Israel. I am passionate about improving my thinking framework, so as to not succumb to cognitive dissonance, intuitive thinking and common fallacies.
