Judgement is an inherently human activity that is susceptible to a variety of influences that degrade its effectiveness. This assembled volume collectively helped to establish an understanding of the mechanisms by which humans commit cognitive errors. Chapters examine how biases and heuristics affect judgement. Availability and representativeness biases are of particular focus. The editors also include content on how to understand the effects of bias and adjust to prevent their negative influence.
