    bias

    ---

    http://stuffwhitepeopledo.blogspot.com/

    I'm biased because I knew it all along...
    hindsight bias... I knew it all along.

    I'm biased because I put you in a category
    in which you may or may not belong...
    representativeness bias... don't stereotype this song

    I'm biased because of a small detail
    that throws off the big picture of the thing
    anchoring bias... see the forest for the trees

    I'm biased toward the first example
    that comes to mind
    availability bias... to the first thing that comes to mind

    Oh oh bias
    don't let bias into your mind

    Bias don't try this
    it'll influence your thinking and memories,
    don't mess with these
    but you're guilty of distorted thinking

    Cognitive bias
    your mind becomes blinded
    decisions and problems
    you've been forced to solve them wrongly

    I'm biased because I'll only listen
    to what I agree with
    confirmation bias... your narrowminded if you are this

    I'm biased because I take credit
    for success but no blame for failure
    self-serving bias... my success and your failure

    I'm biased when I remember things the way
    I would've expected them to be
    expectancy bias... false memories are shaped by these

    I'm biased becase I think my opinion now
    was my opinion then
    self-consistency bias ... but you felt different way back when

    Oh oh bias don't let bias into your mind...
    Bias don't try this,
    it'll influence you thinking and memories,
    don't mess with these
    but you're guilty of distorted thinking.

    Cognitive bias your mind becomes blinded;
    decisions and problems
    you've been forced to solve them wrongly!

    Enlightenment - by Van Morrison


    Chop that wood
    Carry water
    What's the sound of one hand clapping
    Enlightenment, don't know what it is

    Every second, every minute
    It keeps changing to something different
    Enlightenment, don't know what it is
    Enlightenment, don't know what it is
    It says it's non attachment
    Non attachment. non attachment

    I'm in the here and now, and I'm meditating
    And still I'm suffering but that's my problem
    Enlightenment, don't know what it is

    Wake up

    Enlightenment says the world is nothing
    Nothing but a dream, everything's an illusion
    And nothing is real

    Good or bad baby
    You can change it anyway you want
    You can rearrange it
    Enlightenment, don't know what it is
    Chop that wood
    And carry water
    What's the sound of one hand clapping
    Enlightenment, don't know what it is

    All around baby. you can see
    You're making your own reality. everyday because
    Enlightenment, don't know what it is

    One more time

    Enlightenment. don't know what it is
    It's up to you
    Enlightenment. don't know what it is
    It's up to you everyday
    Enlightenment, don't know what it is
    It's always up to you
    Enlightenment, don't know what it is
