Bias Blind-Spot

The Bias Blind Spot is the cognitive bias of recognizing the impact of biases on the judgment of others, while failing to see the impact of biases on one’s own judgment.

One useful counter-measure is to ask: What biases am I potentially not paying attention to? Is there any framework that could be in place that I’m not consciously aware of? Even if you don’t know the answer, the simple act of realising there’s a question to be asked, is useful as a counter-measure.
