Pessimism Bias:  "The Pessimistic Bias." Cafe Hayek RSS. N.p., n.d. Web. 20 Oct. 2015.

This article is bias toward pessimism. The author is speaking about himself, that he is happier now than he was, or ever thought he would be, ten to twenty years ago. The author is only speaking of the down sides to this. He knows the down sides because he lived it. There may not be a ton of good things from pessimism but he did not mention the good.


Time-Saving Bias:  "The Time-Saving Bias: Judgements, cognition, and perception." N.p., n.d. Web.

This article is bias toward what the author thinks about people who are time-saving. This author thought that according to their "research" everyone is a time-saver. In this article, the author based their "research" all hypothetically. Since this is all based hypothetically, the author used what they though about time-saving. The author came to the conclusion that everyone must be a time-saver.

Self-Serving Bias:  "The Self-Serving Bias - Definition, Research, and Antidotes." Psychology Today. N.p., n.d. Web. 20 Oct. 2015.

The authors who wrote the bias article about self-serving used the words probably and may happen. The authors did not know for sure what happened during this bias. They were against self-serving and did not care about the pros of it or the people who have it.

Trait Ascription Bias:  "The Actor and The Observer." N.p., n.d. Web.

This article mentions two bias observers, Jones and Nisbett, who make it seem people who suffer with trait ascription are self-centered. People who have this do not really have a choice, meaning, they did not chose to be like that, it just happened. Jones and Nisbett were bias toward people who do not suffer from trait ascription, rather than people who do.

Change Bias:    "ImplicitSolution." ImplicitSolution. N.p., n.d. Web. 20 Oct. 2015.

This article was found on a website to help people with change bias. The author was positive toward this. The author wanted to help people who had this, and they had a positive attitude. The author did not say many bad things about this bias, mostly kind things. This author is being bias toward people who have this, rather than people who do not. They are being positive toward this because they want to help people and have nothing but pleasant thoughts, especially for help, towards it.
