How to fight Confirmation Bias

We can combat Confirmation Bias by taking a bottom-up approach, focused on optimizing relevancy, as is done in the Zettelkasten method.

A bottom-up approach means building things from small, not necessarily structured details rather than starting from a big idea and filling in the required details as you go.

This prevents you from defining a direction from the start, forcing you into optimizing for relevancy - anything that connects to previous small ideas is considered, until a well-rounded opinion can be formed.
