Thanks for the link. Interesting piece.

The author’s observation on the dialogues is telling: ‘Socrates’ various interlocutors across the Platonic dialogues include the young and the old, politicians and laymen, intellectuals and slaves, doctors and mystics, the drunk and the sober, the very rich and the middle class. While the character traits of particular individuals do affect their susceptibility to different fallacies and mental errors, this broad demographic range suggests a dramatic approximation of a large and representative sample of the population’, which pre-dated the experimental demonstrations by 2500 years!

Cognitive and affective biases spare no one.
