Abstract

In this paper, we present a preliminary analysis of factors such as company culture, education and experience, on confirmation bias levels of software developers and testers. Confirmation bias is defined as the tendency of people to verify their hypotheses rather than refuting them and thus it has an effect on all software testing.
