Hindsight Bias

People’s tendency to proclaim events and outcomes as easily predictable after they have already occurred, as in politics, sporting events, and prophecies.

Example: “Well, of course the Eagles were going to win. There was no doubt in my mind.” –“But honey, last week you were so worried they would lose!”
