As much as we all like to think of ourselves as rational, occasionally we worry about things we probably shouldn’t. Here’s an example: what worries you more, getting bitten by a shark or a mosquito? If you said the shark you might want to think again.

Check out the infographic on the World’s Deadliest Animals which shows that although 10 people a year die from shark attacks, 725,000 die from mosquito bites. Sometimes when we focus on the wrong thing, it causes us to make poor decisions, including with our investments.
