I'm an amateur student of cognitive biases and psychological traps and have been reading some of the work of Kahneman, Tversky, Gilovich et al. along with more popular books like Cialdini's "Influence." Has any work has been done on which of the cognitive biases/shortcomings are the most prevalent and widespread?
In layman's terms, I'm trying to answer the question: which behavioral traps are the most common? I'm aware that this is a loaded question in that different sociocultural influences can have a huge impact on what is "common". Any pointers much appreciated! Thanks.
