Perhaps no literature better explains this theory better than The Little Black Fish by Samad Behrangi.
Coded within the texts of this story are beautiful tapestries of our natural tendency to easily accept things that support our existing world-view. In other words, we simply believe what we already believe.
Sadly if our beliefs are flawed, then our world-view, ideas, and ultimately our actions, are also likely to be fundamentally flawed by default.
The little black fish refused Confirmation Bias, instead it left the comfort of it’s small pond by faith, for an epic adventure into big blue sea!
