Rationalization in a Reasoning Task
Evans, J.; Wason, P. C.
British Journal of Psychology, 67, 4, 479-86, Nov 76
In this research subjects are asked to justify three common erroneous solutions and the correct solution, all of which purport to be the "correct solution". It was predicted that the subjects would give reasons supporting any given solution, and indicate a high degree of confidence in the correctness of their justifications. (Author/RK)
