These are some more biases I identified from among people
- The Majority Is Whole Bias: This is a bias in which people perceive the majority as the whole. This is much more common in stereotyping. People have the bias that a behavior and character that is observed in the majority of people from a stereotype is actually common for all people in the stereotype. This is called a stereotype error. It is also observed in group dynamics. People with this bias tend to think that a character or behavior that is seen in most members of the group is typically the character or behavior of the group. This phenomenon is also known as Generalization.
- The Reward Bias: People with this bias have a strong flawed belief that they deserve more reward than they actually deserve. This is a narcissistic attitude and thought in which people with the bias don’t have a clear picture about the reward they deserve.
- The Accomplished and Struggling Hero Bias: This is much similar to the halo effect in which people with one desirable trait are taken generally as they have a lot of desirable traits. People with this bias take the Accomplished who succeded in one area, and the Struggling who passed through a lot of challenges and overcame them are exceptional and extraordinary heros that are different from most people while in reality that actually is wrong. People who tend to be cultish about these people are people who show this bias often. Leaders often make the mistake of accepting and fueling this kind of bias in people to look powerful and strong, while in reality they’re are turning narcissistic macheiveliens. This is the cause for totalitarian autocratic leadership that is mostly characterized by dominance and control. Responsible leaders have to learn ways of believing in the potential of the people they lead rather than the power and control they crave from followers and the public at large.
- The Grown-up Bias: This is an ageismic attitude that people who are grown up have figured it all. People with this bias think that learning is something that people do when they are young and that learning is something that stops at some point in time. This hinders them from growing emotionally as well as psychologically.
