Biases show up in our actions and words, which can be an issue when you’re trying to solve a problem or pitch an idea. Biases prevent us from thoroughly examining the idea before reacting. Then we develop support around the reaction instead of choosing our reaction based on what idea or solution has the most support. By rephrasing or hearing the idea or problem from other perspectives, you can help minimize thought errors and get to the best possible result.
- Challenge yourself to tell your stories in different ways to eliminate bias
- Work alone or with your friend or your team to put different perspectives on your story
- Explore ideas more thoroughly and reach better, more complete solutions
