Recognizing this, Hume highlighted the fact that our mind draws uncertain conclusions from relatively limited experiences.
In deduction, the truth value of the conclusion is based on the truth of the premise.
Examples of these biases include the availability heuristic, confirmation bias, and the predictable-world bias.
The availability heuristic causes the reasoner to depend primarily upon information that is readily available to him/her.
Often, in experiments, subjects will ask questions that seek answers that fit established hypotheses, thus confirming these hypotheses.
For example, if it is hypothesized that Sally is a sociable individual, subjects will naturally seek to confirm the premise by asking questions that would produce answers confirming that Sally is in fact a sociable individual.
Gambling, for example, is one of the most popular examples of predictable-world bias.
Complete induction is a type of masked deductive reasoning.
Although the use of inductive reasoning demonstrates considerable success, its application has been questionable.
An example of induction would be "B, C, and D are observed to be true therefore A might be true".
A is a reasonable explanation for B, C, and D being true.
