We can all think we are unbiased

I was looking through the comments so far, and was surprised by the amount of people who think they are not biased in a situation like this. Just because we think we are unbiased does not mean we actually are.

Why do you think drug trials have to be done as blind trials with people getting a placebo - I bet every single person in those trials believes they will give honest replies to whether the drug worked for them.
