and do you use it often?

Dear ISTPs,
If you're anything like me, then I know you value concision; but I really don't mean for this to be a yes/no question.
Tell me your thoughts!

Wouldn't placebos more or less fall into that category?

Saying "this will cause _____", then _____ occurs because the person believes it will?

Cognitive biases are very difficult to fight. We are all victims of self-fulfilment. You can believe other wise. Reality will remind you constantly how wrong you are if you actually pay attention to all clues your mind cognitively filter out subconsciously. I guess the brain have the biases because there's limited resources, energy ie work-capacity.

I've noticed people harboring negative opinions (e.g. arrogant, full of herself, etc.) due to situations like:

Person A: Do you think you'll *insert some achievement*
Me: Yes. (In caution of sabotaging myself)

When someone else would say: "Well, *insert doubts* *insert affirmation of hope* *insert humble doubts again* but yeah I'll try!"

Do you get similar reactions?
