It’s easy to get trapped in your own echo chamber, and only surround yourself with people who think like you and consume similar media. If you succumb to this temptation, however, you will limit your ability to interrogate your own bias. This will leave you at the mercy of the content you consume and the people who shape your opinion. At its most extreme, you may find yourself caught up in a belief system or a social circle that makes you uncomfortable, uncertain how to challenge it and determine your own perspective.
