It is widely accepted today that people do not always behave the way the well studied normative theories say they ought to behave (see, for instance, [Allais and Hagen, 1979], [Bell, et al., 1988], [Ellsberg, 1961], and Raiffa [1984]. Many decision theories (especially game theories) assume that the decision makers are always perfectly rational. Too often, however, important decisions are based on non-scientific clues (see, for instance, [Kadane and Larkey, 1982a; 1982b; and 1983], [McMillan, 1992], [Neale and Bazerman, 1991], [Raiffa, 1982], and [Sebenius, 1992].
