A recent question raised the topic of confirmation bias yet again: Is there any research showing we only like to see/read information on themes/topics/ideas we like?
I know of the following previous one (one by me):
- Do people have a tendency to stick to one opinion after they formed it?
- How to refer to the phenomenon of people only absorbing evidence which confirms their beliefs?
- Official term for the tendency to associate with like-minded people?
Should we perhaps start thinking of closing them as duplicate and making one the canonical answer?
