Unconscious influence 2

Here is an unpopular statement “everyone has a bias”. Wikipedia describes bias in this way, “Bias is an inclination of temperament or outlook to present or hold a partial perspective, often accompanied by a refusal to consider the possible merits of alternative points of view. People may be biased toward or against an individual, a race, a religion, a social class, a political party, or a species.[1] Biased means one-sided, lacking a neutral viewpoint, not having an open mind” 

One-sided, think for a quick second about that, what does it mean? Bias is not necessarily a bad thing, bias helps us decide, it helps us keep going and be who or what we are. Bias, a way of thinking that we ascribe to, it’s how we make decisions. Let me be the first to say that if anyone tells you that they are not biased, that is a lie.

Think about it, you are standing in a shop about to buy something and in front of you are 19 different brands of the same product, just different manufacturers , how do you make a choice? Bias. The manufacturer whose product you pick did not tell you to pick it now, you relied on what you already know about the products and manufacturers best through media messages or commercials. Your bias helps you make the decisions that you want. 

The most important thing about bias is that you have to know it if you want to be successful. It as Abraham Lincoln I believe who said that when he goes to argue or debate with a person he does not care what he thinks but cares more about how his opponent thinks because if you know your opponents bias you can beat them. You can influence how a person decides when you know what they think and how they think. 

Everything about what you do has already been shaped by the experiences, teachings and the practices you have come across. Your failures are also because of your bias, your decisions are based and grounded in your bias so to change your habits, know your bias. Do you find that you chose the same things? Are all your decisions based or formed around the same principals? Well to change that know why you make the decisions or choices that you make and that will help you get the answers you need and make the changes that you have to. 

Walking, sitting, sleeping you are bombarded with messages, subtle and otherwise and with no clue, someone is telling you how to think. It’s those subtle things plus the teaching and influences around that help build your bias that is why it’s important to listen to the type of people that build you not feed negativity to your way of thinking.
