Such errors affect prices and returns, creating market inefficiencies. It also investigates how other participants take advantage (arbitrage) of such market inefficiencies.

Some of the following traits, knows as heuristics follow.

Psychology concepts that affect the way you manage your investments.

In psychology and more specifically Behavioral Finance, heuristics are simple, efficient rules of thumb which people often use to form judgments and make decisions. They are mental shortcuts that usually involve focusing on one aspect of a complex problem and ignoring others. These rules work well under most circumstances, but they can lead to systematic deviations from logic, probability or rational choice theory.

The resulting errors are called "cognitive biases" and many different types have been documented. These have been shown to affect people's choices in situations like valuing a house or deciding the outcome of a legal case and in making financial decisions. Heuristics usually govern automatic, intuitive judgments but can also be used as deliberate mental strategies when working from limited information.

When cops pervert the intent of an ordinance who's the criminal? The people have spoken and the council has acted but the cops are still arresting black and brown kids even after decriminalization.

Critics: Cook County cops hooked on pot arrests
By Andy Grimm and Lolly Bowean Tribune reporters
Two years after marijuana possession became a ticketable offense, arresting people with a few grams of pot remains a bad habit for law enforcement, drug policy researchers said Monday at a Roosevelt University symposium.
Cook County has the highest rate of marijuana arrests anywhere in the U.S., according to a study released Monday by Roosevelt’s Illinois Consortium on Drug Policy. In 2013, there were nearly 16,000 arrests in Chicago for possession of marijuana and only 1,100 tickets issued.
The reasons need more study, but lead researcher Kathleen Kane-Willis suggested that writing tickets, which requires officers to test or identify drugs in the field and take them into evidence, is so cumbersome that officers may opt for the more familiar arrest.
“We have become addicted to arresting people with small amounts of marijuana,” Kane-Willis said. “This is a serious issue that really impacts people and is hard on them.”
Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy backed a 2012 marijuana ordinance adopted with broad support by the Chicago City Council.
“We will continue looking for ways to improve our implementation of the existing cannabis ordinance, and possibly even improving the ordinance itself, so our officers can focus on illegal guns and reducing violent crime,” he said in a statement issued Monday.
The Roosevelt study said last year 93 percent of misdemeanor marijuana offenses in the city were handled with arrests — a ratio of 14 arrests to every ticket, with most arrests in overwhelmingly minority areas. However, officials said, to date in 2014 about 86 percent of all misdemeanor cases include an arrest
