Abstract:

Krueger & Funder (K&F) describe social psychology as overly consumed with maladaptive heuristics and biases. This characterization fails to consider multi-process models of social thought and action. Such models, especially with respect to attitudes, have outlined the situational and individual difference variables responsible for determining when thoughts and actions are relatively thoughtful versus when they are more reliant on mental shortcuts.

1. It is important to note that just because a judgment is thoughtful, it does not mean that it is rational or accurate. Just as mental shortcuts can provide adaptive responses in some situations, so too can thoughtful decisions be tainted with bias.
