Habitual Domains: Stealth Software for Effective Decision Making
Each human is endowed with a priceless supercomputer — the brain. Unfortunately, due to its limited software (habitual concept and thinking), the supercomputer could not fully utilize its potential. To be a great MCDM scholar, we need to expand and enrich our domains of thinking, which usually can lead us to strikingly better decisions than ever conceived possible. Using habitual domain (HD) theory, we provide easy but effective human software programs to expand and enrich our thinking for re-engineering effective decision making.
