Confirmation Bias

Confirmation bias (also called confirmatory bias or myside bias) is a tendency of people to favor information that confirms their beliefs or hypotheses. People display this bias when they gather or remember information selectively, or when they interpret it in a biased way. The effect is stronger for emotionally charged issues and for deeply entrenched beliefs. They also tend to interpret ambiguous evidence as supporting their existing position. Biased search, interpretation and memory have been invoked to explain attitude polarization (when a disagreement becomes more extreme even though the different parties are exposed to the same evidence), belief perseverance (when beliefs persist after the evidence for them is shown to be false), the irrational primacy effect (a greater reliance on information encountered early in a series) and illusory correlation (when people falsely perceive an association between two events or situations).

On Some Real Shit Tho

Sadness Minaj

I remember her to be Black. I pity the young generation that looks up to her. Good luck, ya’ll. How can you love yourself and navigate to your ultimate goal when your role models are stuck on stupid?

[Edit: If your role models are retarded, and you're facing a big obstacle, and you think "what would my hero do?", you might be shooting yourself in the foot. That's what I meant above.]

Be careful who you choose to be your hero!
