Belief-confirming reasoning bias in social anxiety disorder.

BELIEF BIAS is when in spite of the facts, people will tend to consider believable conclusions as true and unbelievable conclusions as not true. J Behav Ther Exp Psychiatry. 2016 Dec;53:9-16

Comment: This study found a belief bias among those with social anxiety disorder. The beliefs tended to reinforce false ideas with the result of affirming their social anxieties.
