Brain Belief – Common Questions, 3

Can beliefs really impact a brain’s bias?

Yes. Definitely. Beliefs can impact a brain’s bias. Here’s a vehicle metaphor that may help explain this. Vehicles create traffic. If there were no vehicles there would be no vehicular traffic. Once created, traffic can impact vehicles—often impeding their progress and sometimes contributing to accidents. The brain creates the conscious and subconscious minds, which in turn can impact and direct the brain. Once beliefs are firmly entrenched they can influence your brain’s bias assessments along with your resulting decisions and choices, actions and exhibited behaviors.
Anger, fear, belligerence for something that is “different” may surface when that might not otherwise have been the case.

What is an example of a belief that turns into a bias? (more to come)
