You May Be Guilty of Confirmation Bias When Analyzing Accident Reports

When you hear a story about how something went wrong while sailing, diving, shooting, or in whatever context; we tend to make immediate judgements, even if we think we have tried to avoid doing that. We delve into our own previous experiences. Then, we match up the elements of a situation with our own experiences. Next we find some similarities. Finally, we fill in the unknown variables based on what we have experienced ourselves. That is confirmation bias. It’s normal, but, it causes us to stop thinking over a situation because we have made up our mind what happened. That’s when we miss the opportunity to learn more and grow.
