These include biases (i) due to the retrievability of instances (examples easily brought to mind are often judged to be more likely than they actually are), (ii) due to imaginability (easily imagined outcomes can give the illusion that they are more common), and (iii) due to illusory correlation (one event more strongly implies another if the two events frequently occur simultaneously).
The availability heuristic is not only affected by the distance of the past events, but also by the imaginability of the future events.
