Cognitive Bias


It is unfortunate, but some of the smartest people I have known suffer from this disorder.

Oftentimes this type of “disorder” doesn’t permit an apology,

yet rather expects them instead.😥

One response to “Cognitive Bias

  1. Here is a good example from Wikipedia >
    “Untruth naturally afflicts historical information. There are various reasons that make this unavoidable. One of them is partisanship for opinions and schools. […] if the soul is infected with partisanship for a particular opinion or sect, it accepts without a moment’s hesitation the information that is agreeable to it. Prejudice and partisanship obscure the critical faculty and preclude critical investigation. The result is that falsehoods are accepted and transmitted.”[66]
