“We have no idea how biased we are

It has been well established that people have a “bias blind spot,” meaning that they are less likely to detect bias in themselves than others…believing you are less biased than your peers has detrimental consequences on judgments and behaviors, such as accurately judging whether advice is useful…This disparity is the bias blind spot, and occurs for everyone, for many different types of judgments and decisions”…everyone is affected by blind spot bias—only one adult out of 661 said that he/she is more biased than the average person.

“This susceptibility to the bias blind spot appears to be pervasive, and is unrelated to people’s intelligence, self-esteem, and actual ability to make unbiased judgments and decisions.”

They also found that people with a high bias blind spot are those most likely to ignore the advice of peers or experts, and are least likely to learn from de-biasing training that could improve the quality of their decisions.

…” People more prone to think they are less biased than others are less accurate at evaluating their abilities relative to the abilities of others, they listen less to others’ advice, and are less likely to learn from training that would help them make less biased judgments,”
