It’s impossible not to do this as we each perceive the world differently according to a series of subconscious ‘filter’s that all information must go through before it is allowed to reach our conscious mind. This makes free thinking almost impossible as all that we perceive is as a result of the rules that have been learned about the world up to this point.
This is somewhat affected by the effects of social camouflage but not enough to permanently alter our beliefs as we are an egocentric consciousness.
If you’re aware that you’re doing it, you can act against it. It’s when you do it but are oblivious to it that it becomes an issue.
