The Psych Handbook
The Psych Handbook is a collection of 150+ psychological biases and insights which has been covered over the period of 2+ year of writing the newsletter called Psych.
This Handbook is an introductory compilation of psychological biases related to human nature, behavior economics, social psychology and an overview of psychology in humans. Not only it will help to understand learn "why people do what they do", but it also explains certain aspects of human nature through the biases we tend to show in our daily lifestyle.
Find answers to questions like why we think we are always right, what makes us buy things, how biases are used in marketing products and more. The practical takeaways with each bias can be insightful to implement in your personal as well as professional front of life. It can act as a good introduction to psychology for you.

A Little Backstory
My name is Vaibhav Dwivedi and I started learning psychology to understand people and their actions. After completing a course on Social Psychology with Honors, I felt like sharing the valuable lessons and insights I had learned. Therefore, I started writing the Psych newsletter, bi-weekly for free.
We recently crossed the 1 year anniversary of this newsletter and the community loves reading the bite-size nuggets of knowledge. I hope that you will also learn and find amusing insights which will act as a support in your journey :)

Today is about belief bias - the results that happen when someone’s belief affects the reasoning of an argument.
It’s always short, to the point, and super interesting."
