Anchoring

The use of (usually) irrelevant information as a reference point for helping to make an estimate of an unknown piece of information. In other words, people use an “anchor point” of an event or a value that they know in order to make a decision or estimate. Behavioural scientists describe anchoring as a cognitive bias.A revision video on anchoring can be found here
