The fallacy of positive instances is the natural tendency of humans to only remember what applies to a particular situation and to ‘forget’ that which does not apply to the situation or does not fit within our expectations. We tend to be convinced by arguments that already fit our system of beliefs and ignore critical thinking, reason, and logic. Anything that does not fit within the pre-constructed concepts is ignored, and consequently, the conclusions are drawn using only a fraction of the information available and therefore subject to criticism.
