    Biases From the Enlightenment Period Abstract        All three dominant subjects: mind, men, and standard literature, not only share dominance, but also relate to the fact that their roles are clearly shown in the schools of our society. Schools exercise the brain, boys are pushed harder and expected to do better in school, while canonic literature haunts students throughout their English classes. The body, women, and horrific literature take a back seat to their counterparts, but still fight

    different ways of effected thinking are called cognitive biases. Breaking down the overall umbrella of the term cognitive bias yields subcategories of decision-making, social and memory biases, among others. Biases such as these affect all humans in one way or another. My personal experience with cognitive biases include confirmation bias, authority bias and egocentric bias. This list is definitely not complete, as I am sure there are many more biases I experience without even realizing what is happening

    Biases in Research Researchers often feel pressure to produce results in scientific studies. Pressure is delivered by any entity, but this perception of pushing to produce, is solely controlled within the mind of the researcher. In order to have valid and reliable research, scientists are taught to be diligent, thorough, and self-aware enough to control for various biases. However, more often than not, there is no escaping one’s own mind or the resulting beliefs that reside within. Doctors, scholars

    this set the stage for conflict among these groups. In Hugh Jones' essay titled, "Characteristics of the Indians," he basically gives a factual account of how the Indians live their daily life. Although his account is mostly factual, his European biases do play a major role in his interpretation of Indian ways. In one instance, in describing the Indians rejoicing and war dances, Jones says that they used, "the most antick [sic] gestures, in the most frightful dress, with a hideous noise" (Unger,

    Gender Bias in Literature I have thought about many different ways to organize this paper and have come to the conclusion that the best way to approach the topic is on a book-by-book basis. My perceptions of the gender biases in these books vary greatly and I did not want to begin altering my views on each so that they would fit into certain contrived connections. What interests me most in these stories is how the authors utilize certain character’s within their given environment. Their instincts

If a person only knows that they harbor implicit biases, that is not enough to consider one responsible for their actions, since the said person does not know how to fix their implicit biases. It also is not enough for someone to only know how to eliminate implicit biases, since they don’t have obvious implicit biases to be responsible for. Implicit biases and

    Judgment Biases and Attributional Biases Thought processes can greatly influence people's social interactions, and the way that they live their lives. Cognitions develop how people perceive themselves and others on a daily basis. It is important to investigate how people attribute actions and behaviors exhibited, not only by themselves, but also those around them. These attributions shape the way an observer feels and reacts to others, and how people feel about themselves due to their own

The term can be conveniently stretched and squeezed by people with different ideas and biases. The four white policemen who brutally beat Rodney King Jr., a black man, half to death for merely speeding is determined by the court¡¦s judgment, as officers performing their duty. Hate, to those particular jurors and judge, was not a valid concern

    I could run with the best of them. But I remained skeptical that, socially, financially, mentally, and to some degree, academically, I could fit in with the top women in the country who got accepted into a school such as this. I certainly had my biases about all-women colleges, and to find that Bryn Mawr was the best of the best certainly did not help to curb them; if anything, it created more. My prejudices remained intact up until the day of my scheduled campus visit, overnight stay, and interview

    connotations and biases. In most cases, this causes us to make more generalizations concerning what men and womin "typically write like." Stay with me, I need you. By saying that anyone's writing has a specific, categorized "voice," their writing is immediately compared to the "norm" of that particular "voice." Therefore, placing a label on the author's work, causes the reader to automatically develop a bias toward that piece of writing. Wait a sec! I don't do that! I don't make biases when I read

    Toni Morrison's Tar Baby, is a novel about contentions and conflicts based on learned biases and prejudices. These biases exist on a race level, gender level, and a class level.
