Hindsight bias occurs when individuals believe that events were more predictable after they have occurred than they actually were before they occurred. Although hindsight bias is a well-studied phenomenon, few studies have examined the role of expertise in this bias. Two experiments investigated the relation between the magnitude of hindsight bias and self-reported poker expertise (Experiment 1) and assessed poker knowledge (Experiment 2). In Experiment 1, self-rated poker expertise was…

TLDR
Working memory capacity was negatively correlated with the misinformation effect and hindsight bias, and the negative correlation between them suggests these phenomena result from somewhat different processes.
A retrieval-based approach to eliminating hindsight bias
TLDR
This research explored whether hindsight bias can be eliminated by manipulating the conditions that hold at retrieval, and predicted that if the conditions at retrieval enable sufficient discrimination of memory representations of original judgments from memory representation of correct answers, then hindsight bias will be reduced or eliminated.

Abstract Previous research has reviewed the issue of biasability in forensic evaluation and has anecdotally related different forms of bias to forensic work; however, there is no empirical research

TLDR
It is observed that the more comprehensive people's knowledge is in foresight, the smaller is their hindsight bias, and the relation between foresight knowledge and hindsight bias appears to be independent of how knowledge is processed.

Personality differences in hindsight bias
TLDR
It is concluded that individual differences in hindsight bias exist and must be taken into account in a complete model of the effect and no significant proportion of the variance in memory hindsight could be accounted for by personality measures.

TLDR
The present results strongly support the separate-components view of the hindsight bias, which argues that hindsight bias consists of 3 independent components: memory distortions, impressions of inevitability and impressions of foreseeability.
Motivational interpretations of hindsight bias: An individual difference analysis
When individuals learn the outcome of an event or the correct answer to a question, they overestimate its prior predictability: that is, they tend to believe they “knew it all along.” Cognitive and

TLDR
New technologies for visualizing and understanding data sets may have the unintended consequence of heightening hindsight bias, but an intervention that encourages people to consider alternative causal explanations for a given outcome can reduce hindsight bias.
