In this unit, you learned about the different biases in decision-making. For this assignment, you will compose an essay that examines these biases. In your essay, briefly describe each of the three general heuristics (availability heuristic, the representative heuristic, and the confirmation heuristic). Then, pick one or more of the three heuristics, and describe an original decision-making scenario that conveys how the heuristic and associated bias(es) played a part in the outcome. Explain how the biases could have been overcome to improve the decision.

This scenario can be real or imagined, and it can be about personal or business decision-making events.

In your essay, include both an introductory paragraph with a topic sentence and a conclusion. Your essay must be a minimum of three pages in length, and it must include at least two references. Any information from a source must be cited and referenced in APA format.
