Choice supporting bias
From ACT Wiki
Choice supporting bias is an unconscious cognitive bias.
It leads to characterising past decisions as good decisions.
Doomed to repeat
- "We tend to remember our decisions as better than they were, excluding from memory events or effects that were less positive.
- We are then doomed to repeat poor decisions."
