Podcast Air Date: Monday, Mar. 08, 2021

Topic: Challenge Your Biases

Note from Aimee J.You will do amazing today!

Action: The first thing I need you to do is accept that you can be affected by biases. If you can’t do that, then you won’t get anywhere. Then I want you to hear about a few types of biases: confirmation bias, self-serving bias, and the halo effect.

Confirmation bias - tendency to interpret new evidence as confirmation of one's existing beliefs or theories (women are bad drivers)

Counter: Keeping an open mind. Looking for evidence from all sides and not just one.

Self-Serving bias - tendency for a person taking credit for positive events or outcomes, but blaming outside factors for negative events (test grades)

Counter: Don’t ask “who’s fault is this?” or blame the circumstances. Focus on “what can you learn from this?”

Halo effect - tendency for an impression created in one area to influence opinion in another area usually positive (beauty = smarts)

Horn effect - tendency for an impression created in one area to influence opinion in another area usually negative (bald = bad)

Counter: Be objective and not base your opinions on first impressions

If we don’t challenge our biases, then we won’t grow.


You are Awesome.

You are Loved.

You are Needed. And most importantly,
