Human Error - To err is human. Throughout everyday life, human error is around every corner. Human error is defined as, “a mistake made by a person rather than being caused by a poorly designed process or the malfunctioning of a machine such as a computer.” (Encarta, 2009) To simplify this definition, people make mistakes. Human error may become apparent in the form of human behavior or conduct that can be categorized as undesirable, unacceptable, careless, inattentive, forgetful, reckless, harmful, a miscommunication, human performance that is extreme in variability or beyond the limits of that expected, or an inappropriate form of risk taking behavior....   [tags: Miscommunication, Shift Work] 2179 words

Eyewitness Error - Memory is a cognitive function of the brain that is often taken for granted. Memory may have many purposes, but most importantly it is essentially a record of an entire life span.

Reflections on Appropriate Feedback and Error Correction in ELL - Introduction Error correction is a delicate balance, and not for the faint-of-heart.

It can point a learner toward discovering correct answers, motivate and push them to work a little harder, and engage a receptive student with useful and informative feedback. Error correction, however, is NOT a punishment. Nor is it an opportunity to denigrate or shame a learner – consciously or unconsciously.

Measuring Random Appraisal Error in Commercial Real Estate - Recent empirical studies imply that most appraisal error is nonrandom, which suggests that strategies that advocate portfolio assembly over individual property selection may be defective.

Thus, appraisal error is virtually unavoidable. Investors need reasonable estimates of value when buying, selling, or retaining commercial property, so an unknown amount of appraisal error adds uncertainty to the decision-making process....   [tags: essays research papers] 2698 words

To try to explain something simplistic by basic properties would be to commit the naturalistic fallacy. The naturalistic fallacy is a fallacy because it is an error in definition and it is similar to the is-ought distinction.

Review of Descartes: An Intellectual Biography and Descartes' Error: Emotion, Reason, and the Human Brain - Review of Descartes: An Intellectual Biography and Descartes' Error: Emotion, Reason, and the Human Brain Descartes' error, Antonio Damasio tells us, was his belief in "the abyssal separation between body and mind . . . " (250). As Damasio notes, there are certainly many specific "errors" in Descartes' writings--that heat causes the circulation of the blood, for example, or that movement is translated instantaneously through the plenum from one object to another--but all these notions have been "corrected" by subsequent theory in ways that we can imagine Descartes himself might easily accept....   [tags: Descartes ] 733 words

Tragedies While Climbing Mount Everest Are Caused by Human Error - Tragedies While Climbing Mount Everest Are Caused by Human Error Especially in terrible weather, every second counts while nearing the top of Mount Everest on an expedition. A step in the wrong place or a rope hooked to the wrong crag may send a climber falling thousands of feet into a deep crevasse.

The Corelation between Eating Disorders and Social Desirability Bias - ... Also, it was seen that the bias was twice as large for women as compared to men depicting that women had a higher desire to inaccurately report their feelings in order to be socially accepted. Another largest downward bias due to social desirability was shown by individuals having the highest 24-hour derived fat and total energy intake scores. Thus the results proved a large downward bias in reporting food intake which can be attributed to social desirability bias. (Hebert et al., 1997). This false self-reporting of food intake or physical activity can be problematic when the results form the basis for a major decision For example: when the results are to be used for epidemiological stud...   [tags: error in self-report, human behaviours] 1408 words

Accurately Predicting the Focal Length For Four Lens Systems - Abstract: We attempted to accurately predict the focal length for four lens systems: a 100 mm lens, a 200 mm lens, a compound lens system, and an unknown lens. This was done by using an optics track with a mounted light and displayed image, and measurement of the location of image in full focus after movement of a white display plate set up after the lens system. The best value of f100 was determined to be from unweighted computations, with a value of f100=(0.096±0.0004) m, with a percent error of 3.6%, a fractional error of 0.4%, and a discrepancy of 9.1σ....   [tags: Research Analysis] 1812 words

The Meditations by Rene Descartes - In Descartes’ Meditations, his goal to prove the existence of things could only be accomplished if he was logical, clear, and correct in his thoughts and writings. The most important issues he noted were the threat of being deceived and the potential of being incorrect in his judgments, both of which would lead him into error. Error exists as a problem that individuals encounter on a regular basis, and it also exists as a focal point in Descartes’ Meditations. Descartes defines error as “a privation or lack of some knowledge which somehow should be in me.” As a “thinking thing”, which he defines as “a thing that doubts, understands, affirms, denies, is willing, is unwilling, and also imagine...   [tags: Rene Descartes, 2015]

Mate Attraction and Evolution - According to error management theory (EMT), when judgments are made under uncertainty, and the costs of errors are not symmetrical, humans have adapted to favor making less costly errors (Haselton, Buss, & DeKay, 1998). When judgments are made under conditions of uncertainty, there are two possible types of errors: false positives and false negatives. The costs of making these types of errors are often asymmetrical because decreasing the likelihood of making one type of error increases the likelihood of making the other type of error (Green & Swets, 1966)....   [tags: Human Evolution]
