    Subjects were presented with data, described as the simulated output of a computerized radar system, consisting of dots that could fall in any one of twelve sectors. They were told that the process generating the data might be in any one of four mutually exclusive states. Displays showed for each state how likely it was that each dot would fall in each sector; an auxiliary display showed the prior... View full abstract»

    Subjects observed sequences of data drawn from binomial populations. After each observation in a data sequence Ss divided the continuum of proportions, from 0 to 1, into three intervals such that each interval was equally likely to contain the population proportion. The boundaries of the subjective intervals were generally quite similar to the corresponding boundaries of the Bayesian posterior dis... View full abstract»

    This study explored the manner in which the desirability of an event influences its judged probability. Ss gave probability estimates for each of 5 events, only one of which could occur. Monetary payoffs, ranging from lose $5 to win $5, were contingent upon which event did occur. Desirability was found to bias probability estimates in a complex manner which varied systematically between Ss and bet... View full abstract»

    Using Bayes' theorem as the normative model, four experiments examined the consistency with which subjective probabilities were revised in light of additional data. Consistency was found to be extremely high under all experimental conditions, and it was shown to be independent of the accuracy of Ss' subjective probabilities; Ss apparently apply a revision rule that is similar to Bayes' theorem to ...

    This report describes three experiments on Bayesian diagnostic systems. A system simulation facility provides the dynamics of a real-time environment in which the military activities of a fictitious adversary are portrayed. On the basis of intelligence data describing events in this hostile environment, a threat-evaluation team provides diagnoses regarding the threat posed by deployments of hostil...

    This paper outlines a theory of Probabilistic Information Processing and describes three experimental studies testing that theory. The theory is based on certain principles of Bayesian statistical decision theory and is designed as an aid to human diagnostic decision-making. The experiments were concerned with certain types of military diagnostic decisions. View full abstract»
