As time goes by: Temporal construal moderates the effects of category variability on belief revision
Proceedings of the 9th Conference of the Australasian Society for Cognitive Science
Two experiments examined the effect of category variability on updating of category beliefs. In Experiment 1, participants learned about categories via exposure to numerical distributions of attributes. These distributions had the same mean value, but had either high or low levels of variability around the mean. After category learning participants were shown new category exemplars that contradicted the acquired beliefs (i.e. drawn from a sample with higher or lower means) and were asked todoi:10.5096/ascs200927 fatcat:crq2osgvgnawjfpio5h2ptfpke
