A Tentative Organizational Schema for Decision-making Problems
HumRRO Division no.2 (Armor), George Washington University, 1966 - Decision making - 23 pages
To take into account the psychological complexity of most real-life decision problems, and to develop a tentative organization of decision behavior that will embrace the many, highly diverse types of problems which are presumed to result in 'decision, ' an attempt was made to delineate the component response processes that lead to these decisions. The procedure followed was (a) to identify and descriptively define the relevant stimulus and organismic factors, and (b) especially to schematize the response dimensions involved, in such a way as to derive a tentative response matrix. The result is an organizational schema for use in analyzing the response aspects of the decision-making process in terms of the pertinent psychological dimensions of decision behavior. (Author).
