The exact same 'fuzzy logic' focusing judgement can be used with eye focusing: You observe the apparent plane of focus pass through the scene several times and decide on the point to stop focusing and make the exposure.

That's a good description of the procedure.  My eyesight isn't great, so I tend to rely on the green dot for MF, but I sometimes use the same method with the focus screen.
