Many cognitive biases have been demonstrated by research in psychology and behavioral economics . These are systematic deviations from a standard of rationality or good judgment. Although the reality of these biases is confirmed by replicable research, there are often controversies about how to classify these biases or how to explain them.

The "distortion" is a faulty perception of others, based not on actual experience with the individual, but from a projected fantasy personality attributed to them.
