      Illusion of validity

      Overestimating the accurracy of one’s judgments, especially when available information is consistent or inter-correlated.[62]

      The bolding is mine.

      In this article, Wikipedia lives up to its reputation for being thorough. When thinking about errors in human rationality, there are often many biases in play. So, even finding the applicable cognitive biases can be somewhat overwhelming!

      Perhaps apropos, I noticed that overchoice is not included in the list:

      Overchoice or choice overload is a cognitive impairment in which people have a difficult time making a decision when faced with many options. The term was first introduced by Alvin Toffler in his 1970 book, Future Shock.

      Perhaps overchoice was not included in Wikipedia’s list because of this criticism?…

      This phenomenon in particular has come under some criticism[3] due to increased scrutiny of scientific research related to the replication crisis and has not been adequately reproduced by subsequent research,[4] thereby calling into question its validity.

      … Though I doubt this would be a good nor consistent reason to leave it out. I would expect a lot of psychological research into cognitive biases is questioned and criticized (as it should be). In view, with regards to scientific research at least, it is better to list the research that has been done, and let people criticize it.
