Bias.

As human beings, we all experience this phenomenon. If we didn't have these biases, or mental shortcuts, to process the incredible amount of information that we intake through our senses, we'd be overwhelmed with sensation and information and unable to make any decisions.

However, these mental shortcuts can have many negative effects when proliferated across a society and imbued into our power structures and societal narratives. For example, confirmation bias and it's tendency to re-enforce opinions when presented with evidence leads to the disagreement that many have around some of the foremost issues of our time. 


In this episode, I wanted to give a practical overview of significant biases we all posses and how to control/rise above them to see the world objectively. 


 I dive into a few types of bias that are very influential in our inner perceptions as well as our society 

- Confirmation bias

- Self-serving bias

- Ingroup bias

- Anchoring/First impression bias. 


I discuss how these biases work and give illuminating examples of how they could impact a conversation around an important topic. It was a fun episode with many nuggets of information!
