Thog the anatomy of a problem



Thog the anatomy of a problem



Psychological Research 41(1): 79-90



Experiments [3] are reported on the attempts to solve a novel hypothetico-deductive problem. Its solution demands both the postulation of hypotheses about its structure and a combinatorial analysis upon the consequences of these hypotheses. The majority of subjects (students) failed to solve the problem because they argued from the properties of stimuli rather than from hypotheses about their conceptual status. Apparently a familiarity with the logical structure of the problem and the elicitation of appropriate hypotheses failed to correct this intuitive approach. Piaget's theory of formal operations and habitual styles of thought were discussed.
