Our biases


An interesting observation on human nature:

"Most deeds are acceptable to observers based upon the status of that person who performs them. When a person appears important and his deeds are generally good, then all that he does will find favor and seem intelligent in the eyes of all observers."

(Sefer haChinuch, Mitzvah 275)

Have a great day,
