Question:

Bias

Response:

is always bad

is always good

is only a human thing

can lead to false conclusions

A physicist

was born special and his intuition and imagination allow him to understand things that are impossible for others.

makes mathematical models totally at random hoping to guess right, irrepectively of his/her intuition.

struggles like any other person, but trusts mathematics to develop a new insight and use it to progress

studies only what he/she can imagine and rejects any conclusion that does not seem intuitive to him/her.

When a physicist says he/she "understands a phenomenon", it is usually meant that the phenomenon

appears obvious to his/her intuition and imagination.

can be described by a mathematical model whose predictions match numerically the experiments.

is something already seen in everyday life and experiments are not needed.

is not real.

If we had a "quantum coin" and we tossed it, the mathematics suggests that without looking the result would generically be:

Head or tails

A superposition of head and tails

Mathematics is unreliable

None of them

Given you are at the same distance, time near a very heavy object, e.g. a black hole, flows ________ than near a lighter one.

Slower

Faster

Equally

Time does not exist
