It .   Herbert Simon was a remarkably fertile thinker in the social and "artificial" sciences (The Sciences of the Artificial - 3rd Edition (, first edition)).His most celebrated idea was the notion of "satisficing" rather than "optimizing" or "maximizing" in decision-making; he put forward a theory of ordinary decision-making that conformed more closely to the ways that actual people reason.

    Many economists, philosophers, and others have held that satisficing makes sense only in relation to a larger overall maximizing or optimizing perspective, and on such a view it is rational to seek less than the best one can only if for example one is in circumstances where maximizing is impossible or where local satisficing is a means to Cited by: The distinction between satisficing and maximizing not only differs in the decision-making process, but also in the post-decision evaluation.

However, a growing number of philosophers would offer a different answer: since we are not equipped to maximize we often choose the next best alternative, one that is no more than satisfactory. This strategy choice is called satisficing (a term coined by the economist Herb Simon).This new collection of essays explores both these accounts of practical reason.5/5(1).

Maximizing, Satisficing, and Choice Schwartz () recently argued that the proliferation of options can have a variety of negative effects on well-being. He suggested that as options are added within a domain of choice, three prob-lems materialize. First, there is the problem of gaining adequate information about the options to make a choice.

Satisficing are individuals who are pleased to settle for a good enough option, not necessarily the very best outcome in all respects. A satisficer is less likely to experience regret even if a better option.

Key works: The key early works are Slote and Slote & Pettit Since the development of satisficing consequentialism, there have been several major critiques: see, for instance, Mulgan and, especially, Bradley ISBN: X OCLC Number: Description: ix, pages ; 24 cm: Contents: Two views of satisficing / Michael Slote --Satisficing as a humanly rational strategy / David Schmidtz --Maxificing: life on a budget, or, if you would maximize, then satisfice!/ Jan Narveson --Satisficing and substantive values / Thomas Hurka --A new defense of.

The alternative to maximizing is to be a satisficer. A satisficer has criteria and standards, but a satisficer is not worried about the possibility that there might be something better. Ultimately, Schwartz agrees with Simon’s conclusion, that satisficing is, in fact, the maximizing strategy.

Maximizing or satisficing behavioral trai ts have been linked to a variety of influences, including personality measures, gender differences, and the economic environment one grows up in, see for.

Maximizers will set themselves high standards during decision making and will aim for them buy are often disappointed when they fail to achieve them, dwelling on what they have missed out on rather than what they have.

By contrast, a satisficer will be satisfied with the option he chose even if it was not the best option he could have wished for. Satisficers (yes, satisfice is a word, I checked) are those who make a decision or take action once their criteria are met.

That doesn’t mean they’ll settle for mediocrity; their criteria can be very high; but as soon as they find the car, the hotel, or the pasta sauce that has the qualities they want, they’re satisfied.
