I'm not a psychologist--not even a poor one; however, I don't think divergent thinking fits (what is Cameron diverging from?), working backward doesnt fit (he seems to be working forward to me), and breaking a problem down into a smaller problem doesn't fit. Therefore, by the process of elimination, I choose 4 (and to me that fits because he knows what pleased his previous girl friend and thinks this strategy may work on the current girl friend). Don't trust my answer; PsyDAG will be along later to give you a professional opinion.

Cameron better be careful with trying moves that seemed to work then ended in failure. Taking the analogy one step further, he might realize that this girl will eventually dump him also because of his shallowness and failure to appreciate her whole self. Poor Cameron, probably will end up a frustrated and neurotic psychologist, looking for the holy grail through analogies, when in fact, he should have tried divergence and Gestalt realization. Such is life.

Since heuristic strategy is based on decision making based on the results of previous experiences, I would agree that 4 is probably the correct answer
