It is a widespread belief in psychology and beyond that complex judgment tasks require complex solutions. Countering this common intuition, in this article, we argue that in an uncertain world actually the opposite is true: Humans do not need complex cognitive strategies to make good inferences, estimations, and other judgments; rather, it is the very simplicity and robustness of our cognitive repertoire that makes Homo sapiens a capable decision maker.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Marewski, Julian N.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Marewski, Julian N.</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2014-07-11T06:42:48Z</dc:date> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Gigerenzer, Gerd</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Good judgments do not require complex cognition</dcterms:title> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Cognitive Processing ; 11 (2010), 2. - S. 103-121</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2014-07-11T06:42:48Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Gigerenzer, Gerd</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Gaissmaier, Wolfgang</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
