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 ?

    Talking of biasness... it's in our psychology that we take things in our way....sometime this positive attitude helps us and sometimes not...

    But ya presumptions helps us in learning from ones mistakes....!!!!
