User: What is the tendency to notice and accept objects and information consistent with our values, beliefs, and expectations, while ignoring or screening out or not accepting inconsistent information.

Weegy: The name of this tendency is confirmation bias. Due to this tendency, people tend to accept evidence or information which confirms things that they believe, while ignoring or dismissing information which tends to contradict what they believe.
