On Diffusing Bias by Binna Kandola

we always pick sides even though we do not want to. Our prior assumptions, motives or expectations influence our behavior in a situation where a person may choose sides as Kandola illustrated. I think in order to make a decision, a person has to choose sides or otherwise he won’t reach a decision. If we apply this to politics, for instance, elections are based on picking sides so if no one voted there would be no election. Also, our morals, perception and religious beliefs drives us to always picking sides without us noticing. In my opinion, people live their whole lives through a path of selecting sides and favoring what is good for their own goals or we will all be diplomats whose jobs are expressly not to take sides.
