The video stops and a sort of powerpoint presentation starts: the narrator will present the situation and try to give an explanation. The themes that will be confronted are: 1. What are heuristics 2. Representativeness heuristic and its application in the case 3. Similarity heuristic and its application in the case 4. Simulation heuristic and its application in the case
Jennifer goes home and decides to ask an online magic 8 ball if her feelings are reciprocal.
Does Alex like me?
Does Alex like blonde girls?
Will me and Alex be together?
Does Alex like another girl?
Alex discovers by chance that the questions Jennifer asked made public by the Magic 8 Ball, because Jennifer had agreed to the terms and condition who mentioned this fact, but having forgone to read the terms, she is not aware of that.
Alex confronts Jennifer and she feels utterly embarassed. She had no idea this situation was coming and now she has many problems: her secret is out of the bag, she has publicly embarassed herself and Alex will never talk to her again. From now on, Jennifer will read every word of every informed consent.
