Don't be fooled by logical fallacies!

Welcome to Mind Tools' Video Learning Series from Emerald Works.

We live in an age when it can be difficult to separate fact from fiction.

Sometimes an argument is presented in a way that is deliberately misleading. Other times, people support false arguments because they've failed to understand the facts.

A logical fallacy is a statement that initially seems to be true but, after applying reason and logic, turns out to be false.

Logical fallacies are bad for everyone. If you use one, you can appear misinformed or even dishonest. If you fall victim to one, it may cause you to spread false information or make a poor decision.

In this video, we take a look at four common logical fallacies and what you can do to avoid them.
