Abstract

The cognitive bias would be a pattern of deviation in judgment, in which the inferences we make about other people and/or situations can be illogical. To continue understanding more about the phenomenon, in this chapter a complete list of cognitive biases are displayed. Within these cognitive biases, some were produced by the processing of information, social or group influence, heuristics, expectations of the people, personality traits, etc. Furthermore, within the list of cognitive biases, a more exhaustive explanation of the most important studied cognitive biases will be explained. In addition, the author creates a table with an alphabetical list of each cognitive bias found in scientific literature with a brief definition.
