This article described three heuristics that are employed in making judgements under uncertainty: (i) representativeness, which is usually employed when people are asked to judge the probability that an object or event A belongs to class or process B; (ii) availability of instances or scenarios, which is often employed when people are asked to assess the frequency of a class or the plausibility of a particular development; and (iii) adjustment from an anchor, which is usually employed in… 
Judgment under Uncertainty: Heuristics and Biases.
TLDR
Three heuristics that are employed in making judgements under uncertainty are described: representativeness, availability of instances or scenarios, which is often employed when people are asked to assess the frequency of a class or the plausibility of a particular development.
Heuristics of Numerical Choice in Economic Contexts
TLDR
This chapter discusses the heuristics of problems that combine both memory and decision making and economic contexts, in that they involve decisions among different amounts of a particular item.
Expert Knowledge Elicitation: Subjective but Scientific

TLDR
A number of practices are set out through which elicitation can be made as rigorous and scientific as possible, one of which is to follow a recognized protocol designed to address and minimize the cognitive biases that experts are prone to when making probabilistic judgments.
Hierarchical inference as a source of human biases.
The finding that human decision-making is systematically biased continues to have an immense impact on both research and policymaking. Prevailing views ascribe biases to limited computational
Bias and decision making – an overview systems explanation
ABSTRACT People are continuously making decisions, most of a minor nature, but also some of significance. Few people seem to enquire as to the basis of their decisions or as to why one decision is
Characteristics of a Process for Subjective Probability Elicitation
TLDR
The characteristics of a good elicitation process are synthesised by critically reviewing those advocated and applied by comparing the processes inherent in the guidance produced by two professional bodies to exemplify the manner in which the characteristics manifest themselves in practice.
Heuristics and Public Policy: Decision-making Under Bounded Rationality
Abstract How do human beings make decisions when, as the evidence indicates, the assumptions of the Bayesian rationality approach in economics do not hold? Do human beings optimize, or can they?
More-or-less elicitation (MOLE): reducing bias in range estimation and forecasting
TLDR
MOLE is shown to greatly reduce overconfidence in estimated ranges and to generate best guesses that are more accurate than directly estimated equivalents and is demonstrated across three domains—in perceptual and epistemic uncertainty and in a forecasting task.
Beware of Decision Traps: The World of Uncertainty
TLDR
There are many other traps, which distort the authors' capability to assess (often) subjective probabilities, some of the most common such traps are: decision traps.
