    1. Self-attribution bias
    2. Hindsight bias
    3. Confirmation bias
    4. Cognitive dissonance
  2. If you can’t think of examples where you yourself have done this—maybe you can think of examples from your friends and family.
  3. Watch this short video (3 minutes or so) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O567TMy9E5k). In order to safeguard your portfolio from overconfidence, what does he recommend? Why? He gives four recommendations.
  4. Watch Robert Shiller (Professor at Yale and Nobel Laureate) teaching a bit in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chSHqogx2CI

Then Watch the above video from 57:17 to minute 1:05:20 or so (so about 8 minutes total). This video is about cognitive dissonance. Tell me what did find out about financial advisors? Why did the advisors to this?
