Heuristic is a mental shortcut that helps us to make decisions and judgments quickly, without spending time analyizing any aspect of reality.

There are several different categories of heuristics, three of them are:

I've read another type of heuristic: Anchoring Heuristic that refers to the human tendency to accept and rely on the first piece of information received. I think that every kind of Heuristic uses an anchor to make decisions...

The point is: which is the difference among Anchoring Heuristic and the other types of heuristic?

I mean, to use an information as an anchor, is the mechanism of heuristic in general, isn't it?
