Bias: Distorting influences of present knowledge, beliefs, and feelings on recollection of previous experiences

  • Consistency bias: Tendency to reconstruct the past to fit the present
  • Change bias: Tendency to exaggerate differences between what we feel or believe now and what we felt or believed in the past
  • Egocentric bias: Tendency to exaggerate the change between present and past in order to make ourselves look good in retrospect

I get it, it is was your memory and you were the one who experienced it, but it isn’t what really happened. Try and focus on what really happened and you will be a better person!

To recall the truth you must be willing to tell the truth, a truth that may not be what you want to recall.

A sentence—the largest unit of language—can be broken down into progressively smaller units: phrases, morphemes, and phonemes. In all languages, phonemes and morphemes form words, which can be combined into phrases and ultimately into sentences.

Yes, I understand shit is coming out of your mouth, but please don’t confuse your ability to speak as an understanding of what is being said. I get it, your Broca’s area is working just fine, but your Wernicke’s area has no idea of what what is being said. Please take a moment and shut your mouth and try and understand for once that your ability is not to the highest of standards.

It is with utter amazement that these area of the brain were discovered in 1861 & 1871, which in itself is why it is so dam interesting.
