How to Use Confirmation Bias To Your Advantage

Have you heard of confirmation bias? Learn what it is and how to use it to your advantage in this video from Brisbane real estate agent, Henry Wong from Harcourts Beyond.

“Hi, I’m Henry Wong. We’re here to chat about the topic of confirmation bias. Now I’m not too sure if you’ve heard of this before but confirmation bias is when you actually seek the opinions and advice of others to confirm with the way that you think. You see, in life there are times where you use trying to wonder, am I on the right track? Is what I’m doing correct? Is it right?

Well, in my opinion, one way to find that out is to seek the opinions of those that you trust, to obviously confirm the way that you think, but also those that challenge the way that you think. And when you have the two thoughts together, then you can form an opinion as to whether or not you’re on the right track. And you do that by testing what you’re looking at proposing or what you’re looking at confirming whether you’re right or not. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me.”
