I have not. I'm not familiar with that literature, but Google is. Lemme know if you find anything especially interesting!
Uh.... was I downvoted for replying with helpful links to a comment that was already below the 0 thresshold?
Or perhaps I was downvoted for not including racism as a cognitive bias on my developing table of biases?
My guess is that it smacked a bit too much of LMGTFY.
Probably the latter. I'm reading through links from the links from the links of what you linked to, perhaps you could list all the biases you could use help on? I think my Arieli Lindt/Hersheys solution of imposing a self penalty whenever accepting free things was a clever way of debiasing that bias (though I would think so, wouldn't I?) and in the course of reading through all kinds of these articles (in a topic I am interested in) I could provide similar things.
I really do go through a lot of this stuff independently, I had read the Bullock paper and Kahneman interview before you asked for help and only after you asked did I know I had information you wanted.
In any case my above comment was probably downvoted for it being perceived as posturing rather than because it isn't a common concern. That interpretation best explains my getting downvoted for raising the issue and you being downvoted for not taking it maximally seriously.
