Hi Pat,

I am wondering how myside bias is different from confirmation bias? They seem to be very similar.

Best,
Bill

The description of motivated reasoning looks very similar to that for myside bias (but doesn't sound quite so derogatory).
Myside bias is well described in the cognitive psychology literature, and its relevance to medicine is beginning to be felt.

For those with an interest in cognitive psychology, this is a fascinating look at 'motivated reasoning'.  I'm not sure how much of this is relevant to decision-making in diagnosis, but it certainly helps explain the tension many of us feel in having a political discussion these days ;<)
