Cognitive bias.

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."
The Treasurer magazine, December 2018 / January 2019, p41 - Dr Pete Jones, Chartered Psychologist.
