Inferring Fast and Frugal Heuristics from Human Judgment Data

Abstract

This chapter reports a formal technique developed to enable an analyst to infer heuristic judgment or strategies directly from behavioral data on human judgment. Although the technique is not yet fully mature, it provides at least one step toward the day when formal modeling of judgment and decision making in naturalistic or technological contexts may possibly become one useful item in the toolbox of a practitioner in cognitive engineering, human factors, and applied psychology. In addition, the technique that has been developed for inducing noncompensatory judgment policies from exemplars-genetics-based policy capturing (GBPC)-is described. Generally, GBPC holds promise for the design of advanced training technologies that use individual performance histories to target feedback toward eliminating any potential misconceptions or oversimplifications a trainee's behavior might reflect. It can also advance the science of judgment and decision making, at least in the realms of naturalistic decision making (NDM) and ecological rationality.
