The inherence heuristic is inherent in humans

Hampton, J. A. (2014). The inherence heuristic is inherent in humans. Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 37(5), pp. 490-491. doi: 10.1017/S0140525X13003749

Abstract

[Open Peer Commentary] The inherence heuristic is too broad as a theoretical notion. The authors are at risk of applying their own heuristic in supporting itself. Nonetheless the article provides useful insight into the ways in which people overestimate the coherence and completeness of their understanding of the world.
