NIce video. Just one thing: it's simply not true that more people are being killed by a coconut than by terrorism worldwide and certainly not in the US. I have to admit it probably is the case on some pacific islands.

130x more likely to be killed by police...BECAUSE you are doing something, I'll repeat that, YOU ARE DOING SOMETHING to get the police to have to use force likely to cause death against you.

anchoring bias. video maker admit their first example isn't very good by acknowledging people will probably complain in the comments. I am now biased in my thinking that the rest of the video is probably not going to be very good.

so if you are really less biased than the most, this statement must be established by other people. otherwise either you have blind spot bias, or you don't have it but you don't have a way to prove that you don't have it.

Bias isn't a bad thing, it's a trait of logic that will never go away, and will never not be used in any decision. The only thing about biases is to not let them control your thinking completely, and recognize to which degree a bias is forming your opinion.

A confirmation bias is when you think a coin flip that has come up heads 99 times in a row is more likely on the 100th time to come up heads than tails. What you're describing is just bad research habbits.

0:18 Anchoring Bias (1st information disproportionately influence later jugements. Related to contrast effect) 1:22 Availability Bias (Focusing on what you know / what is shown. Lack of perspective) 2:22 Bandwagon Effect (Aka group thinking. Doing like the others, social pressure) 3:09 Choice Supportive Bias (A choice unknowingly becomes cue of superiority and feed filtering effects. Fanboys, religion, partisanism) 3:50 Confirmation Bias (Only searching for proofs aligned with point of view. Misinterpret contradictory evidences to support current world view) 4:30 Ostrich Bias (Ignore or rationalize negative information) 5:20 Outcome Bias (Base the effectiveness of a decision on its outcome, neglecting other factors. Basis for superstition. See fooled by randomness or the drunkard's walk.) 6:12 Overconfidence (Stop making decision based on facts after a series of successes) 6:52 Placebo Effect (The belief of an outcome improves its likeness. I'm not sure why it's classified as a bias) 7:44 Survivorship Bias (Only taking into account the positive outcomes, which gives irrelevant correlations) 8:32 Selective Perception (Ostrich + Confirmation combined?) 9:08 Blindspot Bias (Thinking that we are less biased than the next folk)

How does the blindspot bias apply to someone who says that they are both more and less biased than the average person? Is this the same thing as saying that they are polarized?

I think there's a problem in bringing up the " Group Thinking " issue! When we are dealing with the bandwagon effect, It means that someone is following an idea because the others are. In group thinking, someone can't talk about their idea because the other guys are thinking in another way! I can't see the contradiction between these 2 theories. Even I think they kinda can complete each other but when you want to talk about the group thinking you said " despite ... " and I think it's not right.

Gawd that Bandwagon Effect...I'm mostly the one who is against some particular opinion as I weigh several things before reaching a conclusion while the rest follow a particular idea like a group of sheep, I hate it. I suffer badly for speaking against the group as I'm the only one thinking differently...😑😑

Imagine being religious and going through this list. If you still remain,then you have some serious emotional issues. Old generations created some toxic habits,and poor kids have no choice than accepting them in most cases.

I love how psychology takes everyday understanding of human behavior that we all learn as children and applies a fancy name to it to create a "science". I mean my god, the "Overconfidence Bias."

Approximately 650000 people in the last decade or so have died from terrorism. At least 4000 or so people have died from terrorism just in the United States. Perhaps you should listen to the TV instead of letting it fall on your head?
