The Role of Part-Set Cuing and Retrieval Induced Forgetting in Subjective Probability Judgments

dc.description.abstractA fundamental assumption of support theory is that unpacking an implicit disjunctive hypothesis into its component hypotheses increases its perceived likelihood compared to ratings of the implicit disjunction (Tversky & Koehler, 1994). However, recent work by Sloman et al. (2004) revealed that cuing participants with atypical exemplars from a category led to decreases in perceived likelihood. Three interpretations of this typicality effect are reviewed and three experiments are reported that examine these interpretations. Experiment 1 replicated the Sloman et al. (2004) findings but the generation data indicate that the judgment results may be due to a misinterpretation of the question. Experiment 2 adapted the retrieval-induced-forgetting paradigm and found that unpacking the implicit disjunction is affected by retrieval inducement processes, and the subjective probability judgments may be better accounted for by an averaging model. Experiment 3 indicates that these typicality effects are not observed within small judgment sets.en_US
