Can we think without any presumptions?

Questions arised from one of the conversation and a reminiscence of a old lady who said:"nobody is right but me."

Are we free of personal bias when we think?
how reliable it is for us ourselves to judge if we are free of personal bias or not ?

    Mar 1 2013: Without a doubt. Definitely. Ignorance is so-called "bliss", only because anyone could spend a lifetime imagining or thinking their own presumptions, while believing that they are the only one knowledgeable.
    Free and open-minded thinking leads to high potential productivity in everyone.
