This paper proposes a new decision making/optimization paradigm, the decision making/optimization in changeable spaces (DM/OCS). The unique feature of DM/OCS is that it incorporates human psychology and its dynamics as part of the decision making process and allows the restructuring of the decision parameters. DM/OCS is based on Habitual Domain theory, the decision parameters, the concept of competence set, and the mental operators 7-8-9 principles of deep knowledge. The covering and discovering processes are formulated as DM/OCS problems. Some illustrative examples of challenging problems that cannot be solved by traditional decision making/optimization techniques are formulated as DM/OCS problems and solved. In addition, some directions of research related to innovation dynamics, management, artificial intelligence, artificial and e-economics, scientific discovery, and knowledge extraction are provided in the conclusion.
