For instance, if we have a relationship with someone—platonic or otherwise—our experience of that relationship is based on the expectations, assumptions and ideas we bring to it. If our worldview is skewed, for whatever reason, that experience will likely not match the reality of the relationship. Until then, we will, in all probability, stay where we are, both socially and emotionally, playing out our biases and finding ourselves repeatedly cleaning up that little bit of chaos that keeps showing up.
Breaking through our biases is further complicated because, in some measure, they feed our self-perception. If we are consistently treated a particular way, we will inevitably buy into it, at some level. When we break through our biases, that dynamic disintegrates and we have the opportunity to reshape our self-perception, probably for the better. Generalized cognitive biases, like the bandwagon effect or functional fixedness, are, for the most part, unavoidable. Self-imposed cognitive biases that impact our relationships and our relationship to the world can be deconstructed and even discarded by examining our assumptions and shifting our expectations.
Go ahead—peek behind your curtain and decide for yourself if what you believe about yourself and your world is real or simply a made up fact. What are your thoughts about how self-created cognitive biases can be disruptive to your relationships? Leave a comment, or contact Michael to learn more.
