A Cognitive Bias is an involuntary pattern of thinking that produces distorted perceptions of people, surroundings, and situations around us. You can also consider it an altered way of thinking that affects our perceptions and decisions, and can cause mistakes in reasoning, logic, and evaluation. There are differing varieties of bias: some can cause recollection of past memories to be incorrect while other social biases can cause judgments of other people to be skewed.
