The introspection illusion is a cognitive bias in which people wrongly think they have direct insight into the origins of their mental states, while treating others' introspections as unreliable. In certain situations, this illusion leads people to make confident but false explanations of their own behaviour (called "causal theories"[1]) or inaccurate predictions of their future mental states.

In case you missed it, that's not a bias about mistaking the origins of others' mental states, but is a bias about mistaking the origins of ones own mental states.

In case you forgot, I was the one that taught you about biases.

No, you weren't. But it's cute that you think so.
