Form function attribution bias — In human–robot interaction, the tendency of people to make systematic errors when interacting with a robot. People may base their expectations and perceptions of a robot on its appearance (form) and attribute functions which do not necessarily mirror the true functions of the robot.
Often we are faced with situations where our intuition misguides us. Cognitive biases are systematic patterns of deviation from norm or rationality in judgment. Many of these biases affect belief formation, business and economic decisions, and human behavior in general.
