| Confirmation Bias

  • 1.

    Confirmation bias does not necessarily need evidence, it just requires a blind or unexamined, willing acceptance and belief. And so to approach a subject with a confirmation bias, will generally produce its own confirming conclusion, whether it is for or against. Therefore, if we are truly concerned with discovering truth, we also need to openly examine the opposite of our bias. By stepping back from our prejudicial mindset or attitude, to become tolerant and fair. And to look from other points of view, as well as from a larger, over-arching perspective.
