Reasons for Confidence.
Koriat, Asher; And Others
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Learning and Memory, v6 n2 p107-18 Mar 1980

These attempts include selectively focusing on evidence supporting the chosen answer and disregarding contradictory evidence. Results suggest that confidence depends on the amount and strength of evidence supporting the answer chosen. (Author/RD)
