Cognitive Bias

Now when it comes to an interesting point I find it hard not to talk about it, I find it helps me remember the thought and explaining it to someone else serves to better understand it, however it never ceases to amaze me how some people react to things I tell them.
Recently I have been reading about cognitive bias, a brief description of cognitive bias is : a pattern of deviation in judgement that happens in certain situations leading to irrationality.
I'm not going to go into it too much as Wikipedia is just over the page, but I was talking to an acquittance about this phenomenon to which she replied "I don't have any of those."

I love irony and I am just speechless at this statement as I'm certain that the denial of having any cognitive bias could in itself be a cognitive bias.
Thank you Irony. 


  1. You should watch Soccer AM, it's the best thing on the box.

  2. Love when people just prove your point for you! Ha!

  3. I quit making those judgements because everyone's and idiot.

  4. I think it's more like retardation than irony!
