Just confused about the difference and what the terms means
Hindsight bias is our tendency to look at the past as entirely predictable. Though, for example, we can look back and say that obviously Hitler was going to conquer Europe, we can’t look forward to say that with the same confidence. With confirmation bias, you form an opinion and then only allow in information that goes along with what you already believe.
Partisan politics is an everyday example of confirmation bias. Conservatives will only look for evidence to support their perspective on how the nation should be run. Liberals do the same. Neither is very open to the other party’s perspectives, only those with which they agree.
