What is the bias of “do what I say, not what I do”?

Hello all (I apology if this belongs to another category).

How do you call the bias of a professional who fails to recognize his mistake as a professional and instead reacts on a personal level.

Example: a web marketer who does a mistake in the way he markets his own web marketing course and fails to recognize it, yet his job is to teach how to market properly.

This bias often concerns teachers, example with ...

Significant cognitive decline; Any thoughts?

Hello all,

I'm a 22 year old male and for the past 4.5 years, I have been dealing with a significant cognitive functioning issue. It has made it difficult for understanding anything with the slightest bit of complexity. As someone who's strong point was by far math, science, critical/logical thinking, and problem solving, it was quite the dramatic transition. When it happened, I had to drop out of high school and saw many doctors to ...

Mixing up dates and times, not just forgetting them

TL;DR short version:

I'm starting to miss out on events and meetings because I don't realise that 9:30 minus 1.5 hours is NOT 9:30, it is 8:00. Also, Friday plus two days does not equal Saturday, it's Sunday. And if yesterday were Saturday, then yesterday cannot be Friday.

I feel so sure of a schedule in my head that I feel no need to double check the time. And I don't realise that there's a ...

Severely Deficient Autobiographical Memory (SDAM)

I am not personally experiencing this, however I believe my husband is, and I am looking for experiences, advice, help, anything really.

We have been together since we were teenagers, and we are in our forties now, so most of my memories are his too. But he is having a very difficult time remembering things that have occurred in his life. Big things, milestones. Not everything is gone, but I'm scared that one day, it ...

Various mental issues for the past 3 months

Hey all,

I'm new to this forum, and probably wouldn't be posting on it were it not for what I see as the increasing severity of my mental issues.

To make a very long story short, I have a diagnosis of ADD (the inattentive subtype), and have had various issues with depression and anxiety for a while (mostly situational). Recently, however, a number of events occurred which seemed to have opened Pandora's box, so to ...

I have a hard time understanding new information

Greetings,

I have a problem understanding what people say to me.

My problem is that I have a very hard time absorbing spoken and quickly-delivered new information. I often can't comprehend what people just said until I process it in my brain several times over. It's like initially what they said is just garbled, alien language. I have to ask them at least twice over to understand it. For some reason I often don't understand ...

Does anyone know of this cognitive / learning disorder?

How I explain this learning / cogntive difficulty is that I have poor eyesight and as a baby, never learnt to understand people by looking them in the face (because I couldnt make out facial expressions). This meant I could only understand people through words and tonality. This continued with glasses. I never learnt that phsyically paying attnetion to peope’s faces was how you understood them and so have never been able to emotionally empathise ...
