As a media psychologist, examining how persuasion and bias is present in everyday forms of media is important. During an election periods, bias is easy to detect but not so much other times of the year. Using my own experiences to draw on observations will be important but I will also have to learn how to set my personal bias aside for the good of the audience I am presenting or consulting with.

While bias can never fully go away, we must learn to use it and control it as best we can. Am I reporting only on what helps my argument? Am I pulling from sources that only side with me? While this may be a constant in an every day setting, we must be cognitive of the types of bias we have when trying to pull information especially as media psychologists. If we are to truly use our knowledge of media and technology to explain how they impact and affect society, we must put our own biases aside for the betterment of those we are helping.
