This project will answer questions about experts’ susceptibility to bias. We focus on experts in the legal system (forensic mental health experts) and investigate their vulnerabilities to several biases. We anticipate experts will be highly susceptible to the “bias blind spot”— in fact, we expect experts to exhibit overconfidece in their objectivity. We will test these hypotheses through an experiment designed to measure experts’ actual susceptibility to various biases and their awareness of those susceptibilities.
