Project bias

A new term for the glossary:  project bias is the bias in favor of things within the purview of what one happens to be studying.  So in a book on Cervantes and Lorca, it would be a bias against Quevedo or some other influences on L, or a tendency to overstate connections. The opposite of project bias is interpretative caution, or the idea that analogies and connections require strong evidence.

You should treat your own project with skepticism.
