You have selected:
Social Psychology Theory — Confirmation Bias: The tendency to notice and search for information that confirms one’s beliefs and to ignore information that disconfirms one’s beliefs.
Behavioral Ethics Concept — Conformity Bias: Conformity bias refers to our tendency to take cues for proper behavior in most contexts from the actions of others rather than exercise our own independent judgment.
Critical Thinking Concept — Point of View: Point of view is literally “the place” from which you view something. It includes what you are looking at and the way you are seeing it. It is important to understand the limitations of your point of view and that you fully consider other relevant viewpoints.
