Smart people that make simple heuristics work

Research output: Contribution to journalLetter

Abstract

In order to evaluate the success of simple heuristics we need to know more about how a relevant heuristic is chosen and how we learn which cues are relevant. These meta-abilities, we believe, are at the core of ecological rationality, rather than the individual heuristics.
