    • try it . . .So, let’s Find a partner for a bit of fun
    • Obstacles to Problem Solving Confirmation bias Fixation Mental set Functional fixedness
    • Confirmation BiasAfter committing to a college, students will seek others who have made the same decision — rather than find others who chose not to attend that college
    • Fixation
    • Mental setAssume that you’re an engineer of apassenger train, and you like to countthings...
    • 1. How many stations were there?2. How many passengers are left on the train?3. How old is in the engineer?
    • Mental set There are six eggs in a basket. Six peopletake one of the eggs each. How is it that one egg can still be left in the basket?
    • Functional fixedness
    • Decisions &Judgments
    • Heuristic: a rule of thumb, based onexperience, that enables quicker problem solving List all the English words that start with the letter Q
    • Three dangers of heuristics: Representativeness heuristic Availability heuristic Overconfidence Framed decisions
    • Representativeness Judging the likelihood of things in terms of how well they fit your prototypeMeeting people in players fromyou might assume You meet three your dorm, the University’s that the laid-back, long-haired guy is fromQuidditch team, and they are all really nice; youCalifornia, whereas all Quidditch players are thatmight assume that the fast-talking, clean-cut guy is fromway.

    • Belief Bias
    • Belief bias: the tendency for our beliefsto distort our ability to reason clearly Beliefs are stronger than logic
    • Belief perseverance: clinging toone’s initial beliefs despite contraryevidence
