guyfawkes: Mostly mumbo jumbo and philosophical twaddle. Being English, I can understand, just, how the verb "to maximise" can be turned into the noun "maximiser" but "satisficer" from "to satisfy" beggars belief.

Outwith of this article and being asked what "satisficer" meant, who would know?

These examples and points are discussed in the book "Thinking, Fast And Slow" by Daniel Kahnemann - a Nobel Prize winner.
There is nothing philosophical about it.
