“…is the tendency to search for, interpret, favor, and recall information in a way that confirms one’s beliefs or hypotheses, while giving disproportionately less consideration to alternative possibilities.”
I plead totally guilty.
I used to support mostly everything I am now against.
I changed my mind. About a lot of things. Continue to do so.
Which shows I can also overcome confirmation bias.
But nothing I have seen since crossing over to The Dark Side back in 2001 has significantly altered the direction of my thinking and perceiving, which is clearly right-ward.

Just The One Thing They All Envy and Resent.
So if there’s some big bit of data I am missing that will show me otherwise, I’d consider it.
But so far, my narrative is surviving really well.
