Oh hell yes. It's such a strong bias that when I first started reading about it *as* a bias I couldn't even recognize it, in the same way that we say that fish don't see the water. After some years of trying to develop alternate ways of thinking, (functional, algebraic, logical, whatever) I find the bias is still so strong that it completely dominates my thought processes. I am making a *bit* of progress though.
