Perception of Maximum Reaching Height When the Means of Reaching Are No Longer in View



Perception of Maximum Reaching Height When the Means of Reaching Are No Longer in View



Ecological Psychology 25(1): 63-80



Previous research has shown that perception of maximum reaching height is relative to reaching ability even when the means of performing this behavior would bring about (future) changes in reaching ability. Two experiments investigate whether this continues to be the case even when the means of reaching are no longer in view. The results show perception of maximum reaching height reflects impending changes to reaching ability both when the means of performing the reaching task (and changing reaching ability) are present and when they are no longer in view. The results are discussed in the context of prospectivity, retrospectivity, and flexibility 3 fundamental hallmarks of goal-directed behavior.
