Unconscious Bias

Message/Experiment of the Week:

What unconscious biases do you have? We all have unconscious biases. The key is to become aware of them and slow down when making decisions and look at things from different perspectives.

For an experiment this week, try to uncover some unconscious biases you have. If you are having trouble, ask your friends for help. Others can often see your shadows better than you can.

Quotes of the Week:

  • "What the human being is best at doing is interpreting all new information so that their prior conclusions remain intact.” ―Warren Buffett

  • “The human understanding when it has once adopted an opinion (either as being the received opinion or as being agreeable to itself) draws all things else to support and agree with it. And though there be a greater number and weight of instances to be found on the other side, yet these it either neglects and despises, or else by some distinction sets aside and rejects, in order that by this great and pernicious predetermination the authority of its former conclusions may remain inviolate.”

    Francis Bacon, The New Organon
