MICHAEL Dearing has created The Five Cognitive Distortions of People Who Get Stuff Done in Silicon Valley.They are:

Some common patterns of automatic thought among those who get a lot of stuff done / create tons of value

• Strong patterns of automatic thoughts = cognitive distortions

• Cognitive distortions are filters or lenses that influence thinking, shape interpretation of reality, basis for action

• The Big Five

o Personal exceptionalism
o Dichotomous thinking
o Correct overgeneralization
o Blank canvas thinking
o Schumpeterianism

Dearing defines the headline conditions fuller, but they can be distilled:

o Personal exceptionalism – I am the best
o Dichotomous thinking – it’s all black and white
o Correct overgeneralization – quick to make the right snap judgement
o Blank canvas thinking – not paiting by numbers
o Schumpeterianism – smash it up and start again
