Abstract : While judging others, individuals utilize many, many shortcuts (biases/perceptual errors) (Robbins, and Judge, 2011). These biases do in fact create dilemmas for people. There are a myriad of biases. This research paper examines the ensuing rampant types of biases: 1. Selective Perception, 2. The Halo Effect, 3. The What-is-Beautiful- is-Good Bias, along with the ramifications they have on various people, situations, in addition to effective modern- day bias prevention techniques. Educators are afflicted by the Halo bias (Keeley et al, 2013). Halo bias arises when a rater’s assessment concerning one facet of the educator has an effect on the rest of that individual’s ratings (Keeley et al, 2013). For instance, if a student adores a professor’s character, she judges him/her as being a great communicator as well (Keeley et al, 2013). The What-is-Beautiful-is-Good bias materializes when ratees’ CV caliber is identical, and employers are partisan in their opinion of applicants’ fitness for a job due to the diverse levels of applicants’ physique and facial allure (Cristofaro , 2017).
