Heuristics are simple strategies to form judgments and make decisions by focusing on the most relevant aspects of a complex problem. It is often said that heuristics are sometimes good but may perform poorly compared to logicprobability or rational choice theory but this assertion misses the crucial distinction between risk and uncertainty. For example, roulette is a game of risk.
Steve Carruthers, 37 years old, was the most experienced of the group, though they were all skilled skiers and mountaineers. Carruthers had skied these hills many times and was intimately familiar with the terrain. Their plan was to trek over the divide from Big Cottonwood Canyon to Porter Fork, the next canyon to the north.
Comment in Behav Processes. Behav Processes. The Centre for Adaptive Behaviour and Cognition ABC has hypothesised that much human decision-making can be described by simple algorithmic process models heuristics.

Human factors also known as ergonomics or human engineering is a scientific discipline which examines human behavior and capabilities in order to find the best ways to design products, equipment and systems for maximum safe, effective, satisfying use by humans.
Not for academic reasons, but for a purely practical reason. Jumping to the conclusion of a rather long post, I think that a psychologically informed understanding of how social commerce works points to the possibility of six particularly effective social commerce strategies. But first the obvious.
This is surely a very good blog, thanks a lot for sharing such nice information here. Psychologist Robi Ludwig. Nice post.
Solving a problem is reaching a goal state; there are many things that can stand in the way of solving a problem, but many strategies that can help. The human mind is a problem-solving machine. It is considered the most complex of all intellectual functions, since it is a higher-order cognitive process that requires the modulation and control of basic skills. There are considered to be two major domains in problem solving: mathematical problem solving, which involves problems capable of being represented by symbols, and personal problem solving, where some difficulty or barrier is encountered.
Where finding an optimal solution is impossible or impractical, heuristic methods can be used to speed up the process of finding a satisfactory solution. Heuristics can be mental shortcuts that ease the cognitive load of making a decision. Heuristics are the strategies derived from previous experiences with similar problems.
