## Notes - A cognitive bias is a systematic pattern deviation of the norm or rationality in judgment because the individual constructed reality. - An individual's construction of reality may dictate their behavior in the world, not the objective input. - Cognitive biases may lead to perceptual distortion, inaccurate judgment, illogical interpretation, or irrationality. - Some cognitive biases are presumably adaptive because some enable faster decisions in scenarios in which timeliness is more valuable than accuracy, for example, [recognition heuristic](/zettel/recognition-heuristic). ## References - [Wikipedia.
