Emily Pronin: Am I as biased as you? well, doesn´t work... Twitch inc. 21:02, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

bias or fallacy[edit]

The article currently begins, "The bias blind spot is the cognitive bias of failing to compensate for one's own cognitive biases." This seems wrong to me. It's a fallacy not to correct for ones biases but it is not a bias itself. Jason Quinn (talk) 04:56, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure it's described in the sources as a bias: never seen it described as a fallacy. It's a specific exaxmple of Illusory superiority, also known as superiority bias. HTH. MartinPoulter (talk) 19:15, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

question about interpretation[edit]

I'd like to know whether the following sentence:

When they had to explain their judgments, they used different strategies for assessing their own and others' bias.

Would be better expressed as:

When they had to explain their judgments, they used a different strategy for assessing their own bias from the strategy they used to assess the others' bias.
