Confirmation Bias

Confirmation bias is a cognitive bias that refers to the tendency for individuals to selectively seek out information that confirms their preexisting beliefs, and to ignore or discount information that contradicts those beliefs. This bias can lead to inaccurate judgments and decisions, as well as distorted views of reality. Confirmation bias is often strongest when individuals are emotionally invested in a particular belief, and when they have little or no prior knowledge of the topic at hand.
