The Mind Collection features timeless long-form essays exploring the art of thinking critically and independently.

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 communications, the military, martial arts and failing at things.

The Mind Collection is my main creative and analytical outlet. I write about critical thinking, philosophical ideas, storytelling, analytical techniques, mental models, thought experiments, decision-making, problem-solving, reasoning and debate.

Occasionally, I throw in a webcomic about a career-questioning Elephant in the Room.
