Heuristic
  1. REDIRECT
Heuristic (; Greek: "Εὑρίσκω", "find" or "discover") refers to experience-based techniques for problem solving, learning, and discovery that give a solution which is not guaranteed to be optimal. Where the exhaustive search is impractical, heuristic methods are used to speed up the process of finding a satisfactory solution via mental shortcuts to ease the cognitive load of making a decision. Examples of this method include using a rule of thumb, an educated guess, an intuitive judgment, stereotyping, or common sense.

Heuristic
As opposed to an algorithm (which contains a fully defined set of steps that will produce a specific outcome), heuristics are general recommendations or guides based on statistical evidence (e.g., "quit smoking to prolong your life," "males with college education are more likely to respond positively to this advertisement than…") or theoretical reasoning (e.g., "the mechanism of the vitamin X synthesis as we understand it, implies that eating Y will reduce the deficit of X"). For more information about the concept of heuristic, see Kahneman, Slovic, & Tversky, 1982.
