Wow. Nice page.

I found this linked from one of the child pages there (I forget which):

I find it's a good summary of many different types of bias, and it
includes brief blurbs about the experiments that have confirmed these
effects. It goes on to talk about self-perception theory, too. The
information is largely in Wikipedia (and less complete), but all on
one page.

Ahh, I should probably look into these. Too bad they're not on the
internet. :-( It's also a shame I don't live within an hour of a good
library. :-( :-(
