Searching for and focusing on information that confirms existing assumptions or beliefs, and ignoring or dismissing evidence which doesn’t – a practice that can obscure reality.
A tendency to latch on to and be heavily influenced by the first piece of information you come across. This influences subsequent judgment as there is a bias towards interpreting all other information according to this initial information.
Being blind to a changing context. Assuming that what has gone before will continue to be the case. Failing to recognise when the context changes, which may render the past less relevant to the future.
Being lost in the sea of information without discerning what is the most helpful and relevant information to consider from within it. The important information may be drowned out or obscured due to the general noise surrounding it. Particularly evident when large volumes of information and data are amassed.
