A Feature Model for Unfolding and Experimental Results
A feature model for unfolding and several experimental tests of this model are presented. Though an unfolding model allows more detailed predictions concerning choices as compared to models for stimulus comparison data, such as Restie’s (1961) model and Tversky’s (1972) Elimination By Aspects model, this is the only feature model for unfolding. Empirical studies in which the model is tested, uncover several properties of choices not predicted by conventional geometric models of unfolding.
