Abstract : This report describes the development of a computer-based display and analysis system which caters to the personal decision-making styles of users while hedging them about with safeguards against potential errors or biases. The general conceptual design brings together descriptive research in cognitive psychology on individual strategies in judgment and choice, and prescriptive theories which constrain optimal solutions while accommodating differences in judgment and ways of structuring the problem. A demonstration prototype aid, incorporating an advanced user interface, has been designed and partially implemented in a specific testbed and has successfully undergone a preliminary test with representative potential users.
