g-f(2)97 THE BIG PICTURE OF THE DIGITAL AGE, ABA, Everyone Is a Little Bit Biased.



Extra-condensed knowledge

We all have biases that affect all aspects of our lives and the lives of others with whom we interact.
  • Having a bias doesn’t make you a bad person, however, and not every bias is negative or hurtful. 
  • It’s not recognizing biases that can lead to bad decisions at work, in life, and in relationships.
  • Although we must be willing to identify and interrupt our own biases, we must also recognize and be willing to interrupt bias in others.

Condensed knowledge  

  • We all have biases that affect all aspects of our lives and the lives of others with whom we interact.
    • Having a bias doesn’t make you a bad person, however, and not every bias is negative or hurtful. 
    • It’s not recognizing biases that can lead to bad decisions at work, in life, and in relationships.
  • Although people have both explicit and implicit biases, the implicit ones are the most concerning because they are the ones we don’t recognize we have.
    • What Is Implicit Bias? 
      • The Kirwan Institute (for the study of race and ethnicity) at Ohio State University defines these biases as “the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, decisions and actions in an unconscious manner. These implicit biases we all hold do not necessarily align with our own declared beliefs.”
    • Is It Possible to Overcome Our Implicit Biases? 
      • Although we must be willing to identify and interrupt our own biases, we must also recognize and be willing to interrupt bias in others.
      • This is probably the most difficult and the most uncomfortable part of overcoming bias.
      • Research indicates that we tend to perceive anyone different from us as a threat because our brain tells us to do so.
