In this module, you learned about bias and how a person’s bias could compromise their ability to effectively reason with evidence and ideas. In a short response, discuss a time when a bias you had about a certain topic made it difficult for you to reason with either evidence you were presented with or the ideas another person had about that topic. Based on the types of bias you learned about in the NimblyWise video “Bias and Assumption,” identify the type of bias you discussed, and explain your reasoning. Then briefly share your thoughts as to why being aware of the existence of biases is important to critical thinking and necessary when doing research, when reviewing information, or when learning about the arguments of others.
