This is a great article that explains how we look for things that “prove” we are right and ignore things that go against what we believe. Scientist doing real studies (not the stuff industry calls science) actively search for ways to control for their own bias in their research. We need to do the same in our day to day lives. The willingness to learn, grow and prove ourselves wrong is a sign of great intelligence.
I am a firm believer that the question, “When was the last time you changed your mind” should be a part of all job interviews.
Anyway, read this article. I think it will be well worth your time.
