“A”, then “A” more strongly
Posted by Daniel Hall on August 4, 2008
In conversation with one of my roommates last night I observed that one of my biases is that I think other people think approximately like me. Essentially, I overestimate the extent to which others will share my mental model for thinking about the world. This remains true even though I am aware of my own bias.
I then proceeded to claim — with total sincerity — that this bias is extremely prevalent among the people I know.
