Self-related biases are one grouping of cognitive biases and cause us to judge ourselves differently than we understand and judge others. These biases include me vs. others bias, blind spot, IKEA effect, Zeigarnik effect, curse of knowledge, self-serving bias, spotlight bias, Dunning Kruger effect, bystander effect, and Cryptomnesia. Developing an awareness of your biases brings them to the forefront of your thinking and is the first step toward change. Working to overcome your biases will help you improve your decision-making and problem-solving. It will also enhance your relationships and help you treat people fairly. 

This grouping of biases is one of six different grouping of cognitive biases: 

  1. Action-oriented: Drive us to take action less thoughtfully than we should.  

  2. Interest: Arise in the presence of conflicting incentives, including non-monetary and even purely emotional ones. 

  3. Pattern recognition: Lead us to recognize patterns and sometimes imagine them even where there are none. 

  4. Stability: Create a tendency toward inertia in the presence of uncertainty. 

  5. Social: Arise from the preference for harmony over conflict. 

  6. Self-related: Cause us to judge ourselves differently than we understand and judge others. 

The following graphic is based on your responses and reveals insights into your tendency toward judging yourself differently than others.
