Perceptions, prejudices, and biases greatly impact human decision making. These factors influence how we interpret information and can lead to errors in judgment. When presented with data, humans tend to selectively process it based on their existing beliefs, resulting in biased decision making. Overcoming these challenges is essential for making better decisions. By recognizing the need for assistance and utilizing tools to mitigate biases, individuals can improve their decision-making abilities and make more informed choices.
