DETERMINISM AND THE OTHER CHARAKTERISTIC OF BIASES: THE ACURATE PERCEPTIONS OF BIASES IN ONE'S OWN BEHAVIOR AND IN THE BEHAVIOR OF OTHERS.

  

Three studies showed that the group of observers accurately recognized biases in other people's behavior while the group of actors were unable to detect these biases in their behavior. The logic and inevitability of biases influenced the estimations of the former. Biases which were positive, beneficial, logical, non-threatening for the self, but at same time uncontrollable were perceived as accurate by the group of actors. The correlations between the characteristics of biases themselves and the correlations between characteristics of biases and accuracy are suggested as possible explanations.
