The dynamics within and between decisions

The dynamics within and between decisions
The dynamics within and between decisions
Using a card game similar to the game of black-jack participants made decisions whether to take an additional card, trying to maximize the sum of cards without going 'bust.' Using this paradigm, Dror, Busemeyer, and Basola (1999) observed the dynamics within each single decision. In the study reported here we examined the dynamics between decisions. We observed whether participants modified their decisions as they advanced through the sequence of decisions. Each of the 32 participants in this study was tested on two occasions; once on a sequence of 153 decisions and once on a sequence of 459 decisions. In each sequence, participants were regularly notified how many decisions they have made and how many more there were before the end. Examination of the data within each sequence revealed that participants modified response thresholds and the use of information as they approached the end of the sequence of decisions.

Abstract

Using a card game similar to the game of black-jack participants made decisions whether to take an additional card, trying to maximize the sum of cards without going 'bust.' Using this paradigm, Dror, Busemeyer, and Basola (1999) observed the dynamics within each single decision. In the study reported here we examined the dynamics between decisions. We observed whether participants modified their decisions as they advanced through the sequence of decisions. Each of the 32 participants in this study was tested on two occasions; once on a sequence of 153 decisions and once on a sequence of 459 decisions. In each sequence, participants were regularly notified how many decisions they have made and how many more there were before the end. Examination of the data within each sequence revealed that participants modified response thresholds and the use of information as they approached the end of the sequence of decisions.
