Question #1

The one judgment that I may fall into while making judgments is the Halo effect. The halo effect is the overall impression that an observer makes to an individual and uses the observable physical features to make a judgment on the person (Wen, Georgiou, Huang & Wang, 2020). The overall impression that I have on a people influences how I feel and think about their character. For example, if I perceive well-dressed people to be smart as well. Smartness is a perception of a single trait of an individual, but it influences my perception on people’s intellectual capability. Usually, I perceive celebrities as intelligent, funny, and kind since they are smart, successful and famous. Thus, I tend to believe that the products promoted by the celebrities are also of high quality. That is, the positive evaluation of the individual spreads our perception in almost everything they do. I find myself buying products promoted by celebrities due to my perception of them even if they are not of the utmost quality.

Question #2

Confirmation bias affects me most times at my workplace. The bias involves trusting information that confirms my preconception on an issue (Mercier, 2017). Thus, I  tend to  ignore information that disagrees with my initial understanding, even if it is accurate and factual. Primarily, I do not want to appear wrong in the decisions I make. Thus, I tend to justify  my understanding of various concepts even if I made the decision on limited facts. The bias has also made me to demystify information from co-workers when they do not agree with what I already know. However, most times I realize that the additional information provided by the co-workers are also accurate, but the fear of being wrong or accepting other people information against what I already know. However, accepting the existence of the bias will help deal with the future situations.

Question #3

            Being  aware of influence of halo effect in me, I can slow down my reasoning process to prevent it. For instance,  I should have two perspective of an individual when I meet them for the first time. I should understand that being well dressed does not mean that someone is intelligent too. Someone can be smartly dress and fail to be intelligent. This will enable me to choose the original perception of people that is closer to what I thought of them. I should be aware of the existence of bias when making purchases since the best products may not be the most popular. I can avoid confirmation bias by looking for ways of avoiding what I think I see. Besides, I should seek out information from variety of sources before I demystify someone’s contribution. Primarily, being aware of the existence of bias is the first step to dealing with it (Wen, Georgiou, Huang & Wang, 2020).
