Confirmation Bias is our subconscious tendency to favour information that confirms our pre-existing beliefs.
For example, ‘left-handers are more creative’.
In life, we often seek out people that share our views which helps to reaffirm our beliefs.
When accessing stories in the media, we interpret them in a way that supports our opinions.
And we all do it.
So, is Confirmation Bias a help or hindrance?
