Topic: Why Do We Make Careless Mistakes? -- The Psychology of Failure and Security

Even though we don't want to make mistakes, there are times when we do inadvertently make them. But why do people make mistakes? Even those mistakes that were simple accidents happen for a reason. Prof. USUI will talk to use about Error Experience System he and his research team developed, while speaking to us about how everyone makes mistakes, and that one cannot prevent them through attentiveness alone. Prof. USUI will also explain in an easy-to-understand format about the mistake mechanism and preventative measures from his knowledge of cognitive psychology.
