Psychology - a study showing the cognitive bias that makes people underestimate exponential growth. In summary, humans are usually bad at estimating growth that increases at an increasing rate (eg 1>2>4>8>16>32) because we’re used to linear growth in nature (1>2>3>4>5). 2/3rds of the people studied looked at an exponential growth data set and were 90% out in their estimate of where it would be at a particular future point. This is relevant to the state tendency in the UK to delay a large scale response, and to the popular belief that the outbreak won’t be as bad as it seems, or that it may take several weeks to get ‘really bad’


Amazing, thanks for the heads up
