MoT Podcast - Mike meets Maaike Brinkhof


When you think about testing tools, do you think about the brain first? Deep thinking is necessary for good testing. That’s why it’s very important to develop critical thinking skills to improve the way you test. But, no matter how good you already are at critical thinking, you will make thinking errors. This is because cognitive biases influence us all.

This has impactful consequences for testing because wasn’t testing supposed to be unbiased and factual? This course will help you navigate the harsh reality that biases and thinking errors have on your testing.

As an introduction to the Couse on the Ministry Of Testing website, we discuss

  • What are Cognitive Biases?
  • Introduction to the course
  • some examples of biases
  • how the course can help participants
  • challenges and how you could overcome them

This course will help you recognise cognitive biases and explain what they are and how to use them to your advantage in your testing.
