WHAT HEURISTICS ARE















Consider how you manage driving your car on wet slippery conditions, It may seem that you would have to solve complex equations that take a lot of parameters into account, such as rubber to water film contact, angle and force of trajectory of the car, velocity of the sole of the tires hitting the water,weight and speed of the car, side forces etc... I could on for another 125 pages of fancy complex engineering equations, and realise that driving is only for well seasoned astronauts. Yet, with simple heuristics, we concentrate and take hundreds of decisions per minute that make driving just the more fun; 

Heuristics are those rules of thumbs, and simple, well experienced statements about how things happen, without having to go through complex equations to prove the possibilities of a design, with a simple approach that is easier to understand and use for the non engineering stand point of view.
