Brain Bias – Common Questions, 8

Why does it matter what your biases are and whether or not you know what they are?

It matters because you can only manage effectively what you can identify, label, and describe. If you do not know your biases, you may exhibit some behaviors that represent low EQ or Emotional Intelligence, such as JOT behaviors:

--Jumping to conclusions that may be way out in left field

--Overreacting and creating emotional tsunamis that can blow up a relationship bridge that may or may not be repairable

--Taking things personally

These types of behaviors typically create messes that just complicate your life and give you and others more problems to deal with. Over time a bias tends to become a belief.
