Is there one word for the following phrase?

To come to a conclusion without taking into consideration other parameters/ conditions ( jumping to a conclusion without ' definite and true ' knowledge about certain conditions ).


Rash = Acting or done without careful consideration of the possible consequences; impetuous: 'it would be extremely rash to make such an assumption', 'a rash decision'

Impulsive = Acting or done without forethought: 'they’d married as impulsive teenagers', 'he regretted his impulsive offer'

  • Rash and impulsive fit more with describing general behaviour or an action. Doesn't seem to fit as well with this more scholarly task of reaching conclusions. – Kim Ryan Jul 19 '15 at 21:40
  • That's probably true. Jumping to conclusions is very much like taking rash decisions without considering all available info, isn't it so? – Sankarane Jul 20 '15 at 0:35

Conjecture : used often in mathematics and law
