This chapter talks about research methods. At this chapter begining, I know a method that helps autism child is facilitated communication. The story gives us a good example why we need to learn research methods in phychology class.
The research methods divided into many parts. Like, Heurisrics and Biases, Cogitive Biases, Naturalistic Observation and Self-Report Measures and Surveys.
I found the most interesting is Cognitive Biases. There are three biases that are confirmation bias, hidsight bias and overconfidence. Typically, when we finished a text, we always think our answer is correct. Nothing is going wrong for questions. "We are much more onfident that we should have been that we got them right".
At last, I am a little confused about Heuristices.
