Title: GRAPHICAL TECHNIQUES IN DEBIASING: AN EXPLORATORY STUDY
Authors: Bhasker, S.
Kumaraswamy, A.
Issue Date: Oct-1990
Publisher: Stern School of Business, New York University
Series/Report no.: IS-90-19
Abstract: Base rate and conjunction fallacies are consistent biases that influence decision making involving probability judgments. We develop simple graphical techniques and test their efficacy in correcting for these biases. Preliminary results suggest that graphical techniques help to overcome these biases and improve decision making. We examine the implications of incorporating these simple techniques in Executive Information Systems.
