Actual Test Question on my Psycology Exam
"Melody decides that because Tracy dresses outrageously and acts in a vivacious manner, she must be an art major. What descision making proccesses did Melody use to reach this conclusion?"
A. The availability heuristic
B. the representativeness heuristic
C. anchoring and adjustment
D. working backward

WHAT WOULD YOUR ANSWER BE, TQC?

I thought to myself:
.... Well, either Melody is a fucking moron who jumps to ridiculous assumptions based on incredibly vague attributes with absolutely no basis for her logic whatsoever,

Or that is the stupidest fucking question ever.

I wrote in on the optional "this question fucking sucks" sheet:

"Does "outrageously" mean she wears halloween costumes? Dresses like a hooker? Wears bright colors? And what does "vivaciously" refer to and what does it have to do with majoring in art? This question is unanswerable, Melody is clearly insane."
