Anchoring Bias

« Back to Glossary Index

An Anchoring Bias happens when people set their standards based on the first bit of information they hear. It reflects little to no research on the part of the listener, allowing pre-existing cultural biases to rule the intellectual roost with regard to forming opinions based on hasty generalization fallacy or outright presumption a speaker is telling the truth.

Narcissistic speakers routinely employ this mind-control tactic to “throw in” statements that are assertions of their own distorted truths and facts, glossing quickly over their statement and hopping on to the next part of their argument in the hopes that no one will think through what they truly and actually have said.
