Yes , it’s very cognitive biases, logical fallacies and heuristics 101 . Elementary but most not aware of this . However, herein lies the rub. Even if you are aware, you WILL suffer from a ‘bias blind spot’: The tendency to see oneself as less biased than other people, or to be able to identify more cognitive biases in others than in oneself .

So , does knowing what you detailed in this article help us overcome our biases? No , it just helps one provide a better narrative for their opinions/discussions. If there is a way to beat your brain, knowing about these biases is not the end of it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
