Question and answer
Q: What are the benefits and drawbacks of self-serving biases? Also, provide two examples of self-serving bias and explain how the examples are adaptive or maladaptive
A: self serving bias is a cognitive bias which tends to enhance the ego and self confidence of an individual, through a variety of processes. [ Many people demonstrate self serving bias on some level or another, since most people have a desire to be successful, strong individuals. Comparing yourself favorably over others: "I'm a much better and smarter student than my classmates. I study infinitely
harder and deserve a better grade." Attributing our success based on your abilities rather than external factors: "I earned an A on my calculus exam because I studied hard. I received a C on my chemistry exam because it was very difficult." Being optimistic despite realistic outcomes: "Although less than 10% of applicants get accepted into Harvard, I believe I'll get in with ease." False consensus: "Everyone supports my idea that marijuana is beneficial." ]
