Gone with the wind: Individual differences in heuristics and biases undermine the implication of systematic irrationality

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (5):673-674 (2000)

The target article's finding of stable and general individual differences in solving of problems in heuristics-and-biases experiments is fundamentally subversive to the Meliorist research program's attention-getting claim that human thought is “systematically irrational.” Since some people get these problems right, studies of heuristics and biases may reduce to repeated demonstrations that difficult questions are hard to solve.
