Are We All Biased? 

presented by Sahar Andrade


People are made to feel secure with people that look, feel and speak like them, and feel threatened and fear from the OTHER that can be different gender, color, country, or different sexual orientation.

Fear translates to reactions. OUR reactions are a result of incidents that cause the brain to recall previous similar associations from our earlier programming- our brain connects in a similar way by the trigger if we perceive danger if different people from different backgrounds; different things can get triggered

Then we start seeing the world in a dualism way or basically US against THEM depending on who you are could be political, gender, race etc. we have a tendency to create a wall between us and these people internally without feeling it.

By gaining a deeper understanding of the biases that influence our perceptions, we can better manage relationships and resolve conflict.
