Myside Bias and Group DIscussion

Edoardo Baccini | Published Mon Nov 14 14:45:47 2022

To investigate the effects of myside bias in group discussions, we created an agent-based model in NetLogo. This model simulates a group discussion in which the agents debate a binary issue. The debated issue has a correct/true alternative and an incorrect/false alternative. Our goal is to evaluate the impact of mybias by determining what effect it has on the ability to track the truth in discussions between agents with a myside bias compared to agents without this bias.
