Calvin Rosser & Steph Smith

Among the many biases that we can fall prey to, one of Calvin's favorites is the fundamental attribution error. The bias, sometimes known as the "correspondence bias", is your tendency to assume that someone's behavior is due to the "kind" of person they are, rather than the circumstances impacting them.

In this episode, Calvin and Steph discuss the cognitive bias, why it matters, and how we can combat it.
