Confirmation Bias and You

What is confirmation bias? Confirmation bias is when you lean towards information that confirms previously held beliefs. It affects how we interpret information and the information we seek to reaffirm our beliefs and values. It also means ignoring information that conflicts with those beliefs and runs counter to our beliefs.

On this episode of Love This B!tch, Lisa breaks down how having this cognitive bias can affect you personally, professionally, and in your relationships. The more you can recognize these biases, the easier it is to re-wire your thinking and challenge these beliefs to help you grow and evolve in all facets of your life!
