Cognitive Biases (8)
Courtesy bias is the tendency that some individuals have of not fully stating their unhappiness with a service or product because of a desire not to offend the person or organization that they are responding to. It is a tendency for a person to respond in a socially acceptable, polite, or positive way regardless of what they actually feel. Whether or not this strategy works depends on the nature of the problem and the attitude and presentation of the parties involved.
This prevents the free expression of any honest feedback that could be perceived as negative feedback by the recipient. Employees of a company, for instance, might feel hesitant to express their honest opinion about the company’s new product to their boss for the fear of offending him. While the courtesy bias can save people from uneasy situations in the short term, it can also hinder the exchange of constructive feedback that can help improve matters.
