"He has the best 30-sec mind," says Warren Buffett about his business partner Charlie Munger. Munger has the ability see through most problems at a far deeper level and take a quick decision about how to address it. He's been able to develop this level of thinking by learning ideas from different disciplines and making connections between them. He calls this framework of diverse ideas — Latticework of Mental Models. Mental models are tools for the mind. The more models you have from outside your discipline and the more you iterate through them when faced with a challenge in a checklist sort of fashion, the better you’ll be able to solve problems. This desk is a list of 100+ mental models across multiple disciplines — Business , Psychology, Decision Making, Productivity, Metalearning, Physics, Systems Thinking, Statistics, Sociology, and Physics. The purpose of this deck is to help you memorize these models so that the right model(s) pop into your thoughtscreen as you're trying to think about your problem.
