The Successful and The Neglectful
Mohamed Rashed • TEDxUOWD
The following TEDx talk is essentially about a bias people have when looking at success. People would seek guidance from those who are extremely successful and try to follow their words and methods like a hand book. But the bias here is the survivorship bias, which is the logical error of concentrating on the people or things that have made it past a certain selection process to their way to success, while overlooking those that did not, usually because they're the least visible and when the failures are not very visible, you can have a twisted perception on success. Mohamed's talk is about seeing those failures, and trying to seek them.
