Risk isn't just a board game we play for hours over the holidays. Pitting family member against family member. It's something we live with every day. We regularly underestimate or overestimate the many risks we take in life.
How can we fine tune our understanding of risk? Gerd Gigerenzer, a risk management guru and author of Risk Savvy: How to Make Good Decisions, explains how we need to learn to trust ourselves. We cannot rely on experts--they often don't know how to communicate all the fine print or don't share in the high stakes of our lives and the well-being of our loved ones. Instead, become your own risk expert.
