“I know a [xxxx] when I see one/hear one” is a bias that leads to false conclusions very quickly among the otherwise smartest of people.

True – I mean it’s not THAT simple but the more people you talk to, the more patterns you notice and sometimes without someone saying much, you can get an idea of their bias.

Sometimes it’s wrong though, because often our own bias gets in the way.

For example, a confidence that “I know a [xxxx] when I see one/hear one” is a bias that leads to false conclusions very quickly among the otherwise smartest of people.
