Holy cats!! o_O
Reading through this list, I agree with the post title how these things "screw up everything
we do". There is literally nothing I can think of that would escape irrational bias. I can totally recognize many of the biases I have noticed in myself and others, mostly due to the reactions I have to someone else's bias.
Usually what happens is; sometimes I don't notice my bias and just go with the flow, sometimes I see it, but just accept it because really there's no compelling reason to change, other times I instinctively react against it because I can see how irrational it is, which often causes unwanted friction with others who are (in my probably biased
opinion) being irrationally biased.
So what would it be like to live with no
irrational cognitive biases? Boring? Enlightened? Insane? I really wonder...
