cognitive bias in which our judgments of a person’s character can be influenced by our overall impression of him or her.

Applied to education and essay writing, we can think of it as the teacher evaluating a student based on his initial impression of the student's ability and performance. With tens and hundreds of scripts to read, teachers can hardly be blamed for judging a book by its cover.

So, my name is Maria and I live in Sweden. This blog will cover my main interest, namely psychology and philosphy. More specifically, I hope this blog will help you listen to your inner voice inspired by my writing here as well as suggested experiments and practises.

I'm also a mom and spend a lot of my time driving to and from activities with my children. Life in Sweden will be covered from time to time and my next post is inspired by the election last weekend.

Enjoy and do share your experiences and thoughts!
