Confirmation Bias: In October 2007, geneticist James Watson, best known as one of the co-discoverers of the structure of DNA, and the familiar double-helix model we all had to learn in High School, was lambasted by the scientific community for a response he gave in an interview regarding the divergence of intellect between geographically isolated populations. "There is no firm reason to anticipate that the intellectual capacities of peoples geographically separated in their evolution should prove to have evolved identically," James wrote. "Our wanting to reserve equal powers of reason as some universal heritage of humanity will not be enough to make it so" The response resulted with a suspension of Watson's administrative responsibilities and was forced to... cancel... his book tour. And tragically, in 2014, Mr Watson auctioned his Nobel Prize medal he won in 1962, stating that "no-one really wants to admit I exist" Harsh. But people tend to react this way to ideas that go against their own personal world view and... cognitive... biases. Confirmation bias. It's the tendency to search for, interpret, focus on and remember information in a way that confirms one's... own... preconceptions.

Confirmation Bias: 20 COGNITIVE BIASES THAT SCREW UP YOUR DECISIoNS 1. Anchoring bias 3. Bandwagon effect tbias 2. Availability heuristic. People overestimate the importance of information that is available to them. A person might argue that smoking is not unhealthy because they know someone who lived to 100 and smoked three packs a da People are over-reliant on the first piece of information they hear. In a salary negotiation whoever makes the first offer adopting a belief increases based on the number of people who hold that belief. This is a cognitive biases is a bias in itself. People notice cognitive and motivational biases much more in others tha themselves in and is reason why meetings each person's mind re often unproductive 5. Choice-supportive bias. 6. Clustering illusion. 7. Confirmation bias. 8. Conservatism bias. Where people favor prior When you choose something, you tend to feel positive about it, even if that choice has flaws This is the tendency to see patterns in random events We tend to listen only to information that confirms ou preconceptions- one of the many reasons it's so hard to have an intelligent conversation about climate change idence over new evidence or awesome-even if it bites people every once in a while fallacies, like the idea t is more or less likely to turn up on a roulette table after a string 0 People were slow to accept that the Earth was round because they maintained their in planet was flat. 9. Information bias 11. Outcome bias 12. Overconfidence he outcome rather than how about our abilities, and this dangerous or information affect action. More information in in the mome rch sugge more prone to this bias than ormation, people can make more accurate predictio that investors check the value ng your mone was a smart decision. 13. Placebo effect. 14. Pro-innovation bias. 15. Recency. 16. Salience. When simply believing that something will have a certain effect on you causes it to have that effect. In medicine, people given fake pills often experience When a proponent of an innovation tends to overvalue its usefulness and undervalue its limitations. Sound familiar, Silicon Valley? Our tendency to focus on the most easily recognizable The tendency to weigh the latest information more heavily than older data.

Confirmation Bias: Cliche Guevara 1 year ago This is exactly what happens when people learn all their WW2 history from video games, movies, and dubious YouTube "documentaries". You end up having to defend your position by using ad hominem attacks and just calling everything "propaganda"...because all of your "facts" and opinions have been given to you, instead of discovered through legitimate research. You're incapable of factual debate because all of your knowledge comes from confirmation bias. You don't actually know enough about what happened to back up your position, so you just project your own ignorance/bias onto whoever it is that's disagreeing with your fantasy world. The US government are masters at propaganda. There is no question about that. But if you think a good counter argument to American propaganda is just spouting Russian propaganda... you're just helping to bury the truth further, not illuminate it. Praising fascism and Nazism is pretty ridiculous and stupid...but praising Communism is exponentially dumber. Nazism lasted 12 years in one country and it was a lifetime ago Communism has had over a century of ruining countries in every hemisphere of the globe...and it's still happening today. There is zero room for debate on Communism. You have to be either evil or just downright brainwashed/retarded to praise Communism and its leaders ..and no, the Red Army's defeat of Nazi Germany was not even CLOSE to being the greatest military feat of all time. That's an objective fact, not an opinion. Where do you idiots learn your history? You are absolutely embarrassing yourself Show less Show less Kobagrad 1 second ago @Cliche Guevara Hey just letting you know you accidentally copied the "Show less" button from whoever gave you that opinion REPLY
