Mental Models Weekly

Mental Models Weekly

By Julia Clavien

How do the best thinkers think the best?

They install mental models - framework for your thinking. Mental models are fundamentals or first principles anyone can learn, and then call upon to greatly enhance judgement and decision making. These models are often drawn from core disciplines such as philosophy, psychology, physics, chemistry, mathematics etc.

Although popularized by some of the great thinkers of our time (Munger, Feynman, and even more recently Musk), anyone can begin to expand their base of mental models.

I select a model to learn each week based on what's topical or requested or just on pure whim - from things like Bayes' Theorem (math) to Hanlon's Razor (philosophy) to Operant Conditioning (psychology) to Laws of Thermodynamic (physics)...
