Truth-biased thinking

Truth-biased thinkingTruth-biased thinking

Provide examples of (1) an evidence-biased obstacle and¬†(2) a truth-biased obstacle that you’ve recently encountered in your everyday life. So, you only need to come up with a total of two examples, by choosing¬†onesubtype from each category (subtypes are listed below). Be sure to identify which two subtypes you’re using in your examples.

The examples should be drawn from your own experience – either a claim you made that expresses an obstacles or one that you observed someone else making. Important: make sure that you formulate your examples as claims, NOT as behaviors or actions. (CT deals with the motivations behind claims, psychology deals with the motivations behind behaviors or actions.)
