Document Summary

Cognition: the mental activities associated with thinking, knowing, remembering and communicating. This is how we solve, judge and think. Cognition can"t be seen by the naked eye. Concept: a mental grouping of similar objects, events, ideas, or people. Prototype: a mental image of the best example of a category. Example: when we think of a dog, we think of a typical dog or cat or whatever. Algorithm: methodical, logical rule or procedure that guarantees solving a particular problem. Although this method is always almost correct, it is very time consuming. Heuristic: simple thinking strategy that allows us to make judgments and solve problems efficiently. Insight: sudden, often novel realization of the solution to a problem. Confirmation bias: tendency to search for information that supports our preconceptions and ignore contradictory evidence.
