We will discuss this in the next section. 4 No information by S Occasionally, we will run into circumstances where no information is available. The time, nor resource, at hand does not allow us the luxury to search for any relevant information. And we need to make a decision or judgment then and there. Is there any experience that we can draw upon? Fortunately, sometimes there is. We may be able to rely on general principles that we or other people have concluded by way of induction from various observations.

Not finding out the information that she should have known, she wound up losing a lot of money. by S Example 16 Mutual Fund price The percentage gain of a mutual fund is sometimes quoted in terms of 1-year return and 2-year return. If the 1-year return is given as 20%, and the 2-year return as 5%, it looks as if the fund is profitable all the time. But the fact is that it actually lost approximately 10% for the first year of the 2-year period. This can be roughly estimated as 5% × 2 – 20% = –10%.

External means that we need to look for it. Internal means that we already have it stored in our brains, but we need to extract them to cope with the problem at hand. More often than not, we need to use a combination of external and internal information. Let us take a look at external information first. Observation 25 nly. 1 External Information We need to make observation of our surroundings in order to find the data that we require.
