Heuristic - What is a human heuristic?


A heuristic, a term derived from the Ancient Greek word εὑρίσκω, or heurískō, meaning 'I find, discover', is a method used by humans to make quick decisions using mental shortcuts. These strategies are utilized by humans, animals, organizations, and even machines to swiftly form judgments, make decisions, and find solutions to complex problems.
