Part of the Path in Psychology book series (PATH)


Four main experiments and three control experiments will be presented here. Most of them have been published previously (Gillièron, 1973, 1976, 1977).10 The first two were designed primarily to study the horizontal decalage between length and weight, whereas the last two were used to compare serial ordering and (simple) spatial ordering. Meanwhile, all the transcripts have been reanalyzed for the present use. Table 1 shows the population. All subjects were interviewed either during the month of their birthday, or 6 months later.
