  1. What heuristics tell us about human
    thought and decision making is that
  2. they're quick and efficient, and therefore
    they're adaptive in everyday life.
  3. They allow us to make decisions
    such as whether or not we should
  4. jump out of the way of that
    moving car to save our lives.
  5. However, heuristics can also lead
    to biased decision and estimate making,
  6. and unfortunately we see
    that humans are not as rational
  7. as we would like to think we are.
