What is the curse of knowledge bias?

  • The error of evaluating a decision based on things you didn’t know before making the decision.
  • The bias caused by assuming people have the same background knowledge as you, causing you to use terms that are only familiar to someone with your own background.
  • The bias that occurs when coming to a conclusion based on data. You assume that you probably could have guessed this information all along and you forget the data you used to come to that conclusion.
  • The bias that results when you are so tied to your own beliefs that your end up blatantly ignoring data and only going with their own beliefs to make a decision.
