Recognition Of Inherent Bias

  • We must learn to recognize and identify the cognitive action of always being biased.
  • Our prior beliefs are put into everything we see, read or hear, and we make matters worse by only reading our own viewpoint, rejecting something that is not agreeing with our existing framework of information.
  • One needs to jump to the other side of the shore and develop a good understanding of the counter beliefs and things we do not expose ourselves with.
  • Having a mild disagreement is okay if you are talking to someone who is outside your intellectual social circle, as long as you enlighten yourself with a viewpoint not seen before.

Meta-learning

Meta-learning is when you learn about how much you know and don’t know in a particular domain.

Meta-learning is important because it’s easy to delude yourself into believing you know more than you actually do.
