/pol/ is always right only because it wishes to be always right. /pol/ is a great example of confirmation bias.
>Confirmation bias, also called myside bias, is the tendency to search for, interpret, or recall information in a way that confirms one's beliefs or hypotheses. It is a type of cognitive bias and a systematic error of inductive reasoning. People display this bias when they gather or remember information selectively, or when they interpret it in a biased way. The effect is stronger for emotionally charged issues and for deeply entrenched beliefs. People also tend to interpret ambiguous evidence as supporting their existing position. Biased search, interpretation and memory have been invoked to explain attitude polarization (when a disagreement becomes more extreme even though the different parties are exposed to the same evidence), belief perseverance (when beliefs persist after the evidence for them is shown to be false), the irrational primacy effect (a greater reliance on information encountered early in a series) and illusory correlation (when people falsely perceive an association between two events or situations).
/pol/ is in denial that it isn't always right and hardly is ever right, but only searches for confirmation of its preconceived notions.
/pol/ you need severe therapy to help confront your delusions of superiority, accuracy, and grandeur.
Also even moreso than suffering from confirmation bias, /pol/ also suffers from a Cassandra complex as far as the obsession with redpilling
>The Cassandra metaphor is applied by some psychologists to individuals who experience physical and emotional suffering as a result of distressing personal perceptions, and who are disbelieved when they attempt to share the cause of their suffering with others, and they feel like they are being ignored.
I only wonder why /pol/ will not admit to needing help.
>Being this fucking buttblasted over a meme
You're taking this too seriously OP
The way I've seen the idea of "confirmation bias" used is to ignore any argument that uses evidence.
> you agree with this point and you used evidence. I don't agree with your point, so I'll say your evidence is meaningless because you only looked it up to prove your point. I don't have to attack your evidence, because the fact that you used any evidence proves my point.
Isn't that some kind of logical fallacy?
Funnily, your post only confirms that /pol/ is, indeed, always right.
What exactly have we been wrong on? All political debate is just debate, and cannot be set as right or wrong. In terms of predictions of events, analysis of trends, and the recurrence of common scenarios, we're pretty much always right.
>implying /pol/ is one person
It's a meme and board culture. Everyone has confirmation bias. We are still right despite this.
/pol/ IS NOT A HUGBOX
IF YOU THINK /pol/ IS A HUGBOX, YOU'RE JIDF, A JEW AND ALSO A KIKE
BEING A KIKE MAKES YOU AUTOMATICALLY WRONG, BECAUSE /pol/ IS RIGHT AND KIKES ALWAYS LIE
>media portrays trayvon martin as a gud boi who din du nuffin
>even the godamn president came out and said "if i had a son"
/pol/ was right, tray tray was a retarded nig who got his ass shot, same with brown
>sweden burns for 6 days, people are wondering wtf
>/pol/ knew it was inevitable
same with the shootings in france and rise of nationalism
see, /pol/ is always right, because 9 out of 10 times political correctness is always wrong
>article about how cucking is for high iq individuals
>wrote by a jew
you realize you just wrote that right?
you realize its not going to be downvoted into oblivion or censored by the mods right?
say something fucking stupid, expect to be called out on it
its also really easy to point out jews, they have a distinct typing pattern
hitler really was right
The more I argued with them, the better I came to know their dialectic. First they counted on the stupidity of their adversary, and then, when there was no other way out, they themselves simply played stupid. If all this didn't help, they pretended not to understand, or, if challenged, they changed the subject in a hurry, quoted platitudes which, if you accepted them, they immediately related to entirely different matters, and then, if again attacked, gave ground and pretended not to know exactly what you were talking about. Whenever you tried to attack one of these apostles, your hand closed on a jelly-like slime which divided up and poured through your fingers, but in the next moment collected again. But if you really struck one of these fellows so telling a blow that, observed by the audience, he couldn't help but agree, and if you believed that this had taken you at least one step forward, your amazement was great the next day. The Jew had not the slightest recollection of the day before, he rattled off his same old nonsense as though nothing at all had happened, and, if indignantly challenged, affected amazement; he couldn't remember a thing, except that he had proved the correctness of his assertions the previous day.
Sometimes I stood there thunderstruck.
I didn't know what to be more amazed at: the agility of their tongues or their virtuosity at lying.
i thought poland got rid of there jews
“Jews must realize that they themselves made the Poles hate them because of their treason and crimes.”
thats why i hate jews, the blatant treason, turning us into minorities in our countries while calling us racist
This is essentially /pol/ in a nutbox, as to how they perceive the world.
It did, it's just that /pol/ loves to brand all dissent as jews.
It's OK, most Poles have nothing worthwhile to say. Much better than Russians, but it's still nothing.
You were the one complaining about generalizing, you dumb nigger.
>Its ok if I do it! You did it last thread! It justifies me being a fucking ironic retard in this thread!
>getting so butthurt you're trying to "troll" me now
Calm yo' cheeks down
That's how you form opinions on fucking everything and anything....no such thing as an opinion without confirmation bias behind it. Someone bias or confirmation is interpreted into the opinion.
So no, it's not a systematic error on our part. It's pretty much fancy tard way of saying you're wrong because you don't believe in my confirmation bias thus we'll create a way to "intellectually" saying you're wrong.
No such thing as an opinion that is 100% right for everyone thus confirmation bias.
>oh no someone pointed me being a hypocrite!
>lol hes just butthurt and a troll!
lmao nigga, where the fuck did I ever imply I was trying to troll your dumbass, youre the one who kept whining about me being a hypocrite, and here you are doing the exact same shit you complained about me doing
>who the hell types a post like that? butthurt kikes
I genuinely lol'd
Thanks to Poe's law (/pol/'s law) I can't even tell if you're joking of 4real
Just read that last thread. Do they not teach reading comprehension in 'murka? How is it that I comprehend your native language so much better than you?
> Cassandra was a daughter of Priam, the King of Troy. Struck by her beauty, Apollo provided her with the gift of prophecy, but when Cassandra refused Apollo's romantic advances, he placed a curse ensuring that nobody would believe her warnings. Cassandra was left with the knowledge of future events, but could neither alter these events nor convince others of the validity of her predictions.
Holy shit Apollo is fucking awesome. So if /pol/ is Cassandra would that make Apollo the jew? lul
>Cassandra refused Apollo's romantic advances
Who in their right mind would do that? Was she butthurt that he also fancied men or something?
The Cassandra complex is different from Cassandra herself though. The complex itself is the mere perception of being right and that no one will listen.
Instead of being Cassandra you feel as if you ARE Cassandra.
