The Mind Collection

I’m Chris Meyer, a German-Australian writer, analyst, teacher and one-man think tank. My background is in intelligence analysis, education, project management, political science and languages. I can also draw on my experience in the military, martial arts and failing at things.

The Mind Collection is my main creative and analytical outlet. I write about critical thinking, practical philosophy, decision-making, analytical techniques, mental models, storytelling, thought experiments, problem-solving, reasoning and debate. Occasionally, I throw in a webcomic about a career-questioning Elephant in the Room.
