Hi Pat,

I had the same question as Bill.
What is the difference between ³Myside Bias², and other biases like
³Positive Test Strategy²,  ³Confirmation Bias or Confirmatory Bias, and
Verification Bias.
I could not find it in Barons ³Thinking and Deciding² (4th ed).
I fully agree with you that these are extremely relevant in diagnosis,
definitely in my field of medicine (radiology)

Sincerely

Gerrit Jager
