Today we are talking about a simple mental model called Hanlon’s Razor
The Ant-Negativity Razor🪒
Yea, that’s what I like to call Hanlon’s Razor.
A razor here is a simple mental tool to shave off unnecessary information or noise from a decision.
The most popular razors are Occam’s and Hanlon’s.
Hanlon’s razor goes like this -
“Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity”
There is of course to more to the model, but this is the essence of it.
We have written a short blog post on the topic this week, do check it out -
