Tversky A, Kahneman D Judgment under Uncertainty Title Judgment under Uncertainty Heuristics and Biases Created Date Z Declaratory judgment A declaratory judgment, also called a declaration, is the legal determination of a court that resolves legal uncertainty for the litigants.It is a form of legally binding preventive adjudication by which a party involved in an actual or possible legal matter can ask a court to conclusively rule on and affirm the rights, duties, or obligations of one or parties in a civil dispute subject Tools for Decision Analysis ubalt Decision making under risk is presented in the context of decision analysis using different decision criteria for public and private decisions based on decision criteria, type, and quality of available information together with risk assessment. Representativeness heuristic The representativeness heuristic is used when making judgments about the probability of an event under uncertainty It is one of a group of heuristics simple rules governing judgment or decision making proposed by psychologists Amos Tversky and Daniel Kahneman in the early s Heuristics are described as judgmental shortcuts that generally get us where we need to go and quickly CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA Particular Judgment The Catholic doctrine of the particular judgment is this that immediately after death the eternal destiny of each separated soul is decided by the just judgment of God Rule Judgment as a Matter of Law in a Jury Trial a Judgment as a Matter of Law In General If a party has been fully heard on an issue during a jury trial and the court finds that a reasonable jury would not have a legally sufficient evidentiary basis to find for the party on that issue, the court may A resolve the issue against the party and HUDOC European Court of Human Rights The HUDOC database provides access to the case law of the Court Grand Chamber, Chamber and Committee judgments and decisions, communicated cases, advisory opinions and legal summaries from the Case Law Information Note , the European Commission of Human Rights decisions and reports and the Committee of Ministers resolutions Risk vs Uncertainty in Project Management PM Study Circle The football analogy is a good one and encapsulates today s modern management attitude to uncertainty perfectly where uncertainty is just flagged as another risk, an unmeasured one, and thus can be ignored, if its recognised at all.

    One thought on “Judgment Under Uncertainty: Heuristics and Biases”

    1. I read this book because it and Gödel, Escher, Bach were mentioned in the same breath in Eliezer Yudkowsky's incomparable Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality. With an endorsement like that, how could I resist at least taking a look?My development as a scientist and rationalist has been intertwined in some unlikely ways with the Harry Potter phenomenon. I first encountered game theory about eight years ago in a book called The Science of Harry Potter. Expounding the famous Prisoner's Dil [...]

    2. This book offers a collection of papers on decision science, the study (and improvement) of human decision making. These papers are particularly useful to all business analytics professionals who want or need to evangelize about the need for analytics.Altogether, the articles describe when intuitive decision fails, and why. More importantly, they make a case for analytics and provide ideas on how it can improve decision making.

    3. This book is a collection of academic papers on behavioral economics. It was first published in 1982, so a reader today should approach it as a presentation of the "first wave" of this field of research, which became much more well-known over the following 30 years.For me, the book was very hit-and-miss. Some of the papers were very engaging; others, I barely got through without falling asleep. It shouldn't be a surprise that the ones by Kahneman and Tversky are generally among the most interest [...]

    4. Very academic, peer reviewed treatment of social psychology married to economic. It’s hard to cut through much of the nuts and bolts, and I didn’t try too hard. I skimmed through the cryptic parts, detailed proofs, equations, etc. But the general concepts are invaluable. It’s really intended as a collection of journal articles for post-graduates in social psychology and behavioral economics. Five-star revelations, but two-star presentation from a layman’s perspective. Kahneman won the No [...]

    5. We usually think of bias in the context of underlying motivations or interests, particularly in the political realm. The underlying premise of this book is that there are much more fundamental biases in human judgments. Humans aren't perfectly logical creatures. Even when we have perfectly good information, and we are free from motivational biases, we still make poor decisions.I picked up this book after there was a few passing references to it in "Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality." I [...]

    6. Almost everything is also in Thinking Fast and Slow.If you do not like TFaS, reading this will give you the same info.

    7. While I agree with Sam that there's good stuff in here, little needles in a bed of hay; and think that this academic work could easily have been compressed into a work half its size - it was also written in the 80's, and things *were* different back then. I do have some level of memory of the decade this was written in and have perhaps a greater appreciation for the difficulty in even getting as far as this book does.Anyway.This book inspired a couple of blog posts. In it I found:* A new bias fo [...]

    8. If, like me, you're a layperson interested in decision-making, read Thinking, Fast and Slow, where Dr. Kahneman crystallizes much of what is in this book into something far more accessible. The book is full of interesting data, but was obviously written for a much more technical audience.

    9. Such a novel research work, love it! Kahneman also put some of those experiment results into his major book - "thinking fast and slow"

    10. If you want a deep understanding of human behaviour as it really is as opposed to the fantasy "rational actors" that conventional economists talk about then this is where to start. It is not easy going, for that why not start with the delightful "Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion," but it is well worth it if you want to truly succeed in any endeavour that involves human inout, such as financial markets.

    11. This book was not very useful in helping me become more comfortable in everyday human situations. I already fall for the literal meaning of people's words any time I'm not concentrating very hard on not being a pedant, particularly when someone says they are "99%" or "100% certain" of something. Dwelling on the gap between colloquial meanings of numbers and probabilities and their technical definitions for several weeks did not push me toward being any more tolerable of a human companion. If you [...]

    12. Great technical read for anybody starting in psychology. Although the book is relatively old, it introduces topics studied today at university courses on cognitive psychology and decision making. In hindsight, one is tempted to see some of the presented results and conclusions as more-or-less intuitive and mostly common knowledge by now, but this collection of articles organizes and discusses the available information in an accessible and methodical manner that facilitates deeper understanding. [...]

    13. Very insightful book. It shows deviations from mathematical thinking and leans towards descriptive research. It is self contained and accessible. Recommended to people who want a strong grasp on decision sciences.

    14. A collection of research papers investigating the ways the human mind estimates probability. A lot of intriguing material, but also lots of dry writing. I must confess, I did a lot of skimming.

    15. Really dry, and I was worried that most of the data is now outdated. Some of it was really interesting, and some might even be useful, but it was a heck of a slog just for those bits.
