...Biases In organization, people tend to depend on their common sense. While the common sense does help a lot in rational analysis and decision making, there is also a dark side to the excessive reliance on common sense which organizational personnel need to be wary of; their instincts are capable of steering them in the wrong way. This is termed by the behavioral psychologists as “cognitive bias”. Cognitive bias "are the instinctive leaps our minds make—our gut reactions and things we “know”, though we’re not sure how we know them. Scientists believe they are a relic of evolution: little shortcuts programmed into our minds to help us process faster" (Jacobsen, 2012). Cognitive bias affects... Cognitive...
