When we observe actions and/or emotions of someone else our brain will mirror this action and/or emotion. I found this concept interesting, because it made me think of the word, empathy. Many people feel as though they are empathetic, however, are not actually understanding the feelings of someone else, relating to the mirror fallacy. The mirror fallacy, continues by stating that people can only truly be mirroring when they have the exact same body and brain as the other does; this is hard to determine depending on the person.

Cognitive biases are tendencies to think in certain ways that can lead to systematic deviations from a standard of rationality or good judgment. This bias occurs when people are processing and interpreting information in the world around them and attempting to simplify it would skew the processing while making decisions. Not all biases are bad, however they can lead to errors in situations such as social pressures, emotions, or individual motives that would limit the human thinking. Perceptual bias is a tendency to perceive or notice some aspects of an available image or piece of data while ignoring others. Perceiving expectations while focusing attention on a particular set is remaining selective and can be distinguished by emotional connotation,
It’s clear that people with addictions have seriousissues. In most cases, they have emotional or trauma issues that cause them to medicate their minds and bodies with harmful substances. By eliminating the ability to feel, they deal with their problems the best way they know how. By the time they want treatment and recovery from their addiction, their illness progresses to the point they might need psychological treatment, even anger management counseling. Of all the issues you are dealing with, your anger issues, if any exist, deserve immediate attention.
