| Bias: Inclination for or against a
particular of several alternatives, usually without good evidence.
As defined, a bias need
not be as strong as a prejudice and
may be easier to admit by a person who
has it. Also, one may be biased on moral,
or emotional grounds, while allowing
one is biased that way. Then again, many biases are unconscious, at least in the sense
that those having them are not aware their judgments
about what the facts are may be or are
slanted by their biases.
