    This article, which is available for free at the above link, is easier to read than most published papers I think and the examples aren't particularly technical/are often very straightforward.

    I previously highlighted another paper which listed biases but it was more dense : http://forums.phoenixrising.me/show...earch-(Sackett-1979-but-seems-to-be-a-classic) . However I think that is also worth a look as a lot of the biases in the Choi paper could be called "errors". But as I say this paper is quite easy to read. It's handy to have a name to give to problems with questionnaires (and to be able to reference the term).
