Title Humans are cheesoids in a world of cheese
Abstract Different research paradigms of decision making provides conflicting evidence as to whether humans are good decision makers or not. Research results in the Heuristics & Biases paradigm suggest we are flawed whilst the results in the Naturalistic Decision Making paradigm suggest we are excellent problem-solvers. In this presentation I will give my view as to why such divergent results can be produced within the same field. The answer, I suspect, lies in the environment and in goal formulations. Therefore, it might be necessary to start looking at decision making from a more pragmatic perspective.
