Suggest you read the paper at the link in post #48, which will give some insight into the scientific view of bias that is objectively irrational. That is primarily the focus of cognitive psychologists working in that area.

There is also a legal view of bias, which is something rather different.

Then there are pop media articles on bias such as the one linked at the beginning of this thread. It appears to be a poorly researched article, in my view.

Oddly useful biases:
-Avoid petting large cat species encountered in the wild;
-Meat that looks and smells spoiled is best not eaten;
-Your water supply is best sought well upstream of your toilet;
-Dogs showing their canines with their hackles up do not want to be your friend;
-If you are unable to converge your visual field to one image you've had enough to drink;
-Your hands should remain empty and in clear view when you interact with law enforcement;

A bias is a rule of thumb developed through experience or teaching that shortcuts every interaction in life being a potentially risky experiment. There are tremendously useful biases as well as shortsighted and harmfully ignorant biases...you would potentially live a much shorter and more painful life if you were completely bias free.

Well put...
Some of the worst biases apply to topics banned from discussion here...
"...when you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, ... your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind..." Lord Kelvin
