  • 15 Thinking about Thinking: Becoming an Independent Reader Moving Thinking Forward Confirmation bias is the tendency to seek confirmation of what we already think, believe, know and do. When we read professionally, our natural inclination is to focus on the things that confirm what we already think, believe, know and do. Katz and Dack suggest that in order to intentionally interrupt the confirmation bias, we should highlight the things we dont agree with and create an opportunity to make our tacit knowledge explicit to create the conditions for possible real, new learning. Adapted from Steven Katz and Lisa Dack Intentional Interruption (in press)
