Epistemic Curiosity and Incidental Recognition in Relation to Degree of Uncertainty: Some General Trends and Intersubject Differences.
Boykin, A. Wade; Harackiewicz, Judith
British Journal of Psychology, v72 pt1 p65-72 Feb 1981
High school and college students solved problems differing in level of uncertainty; their expressed curiosity about the correct answer was gauged; and later recognition of correct answers tested. Both epistemic curiosity and recognition bore monotonically increasing relationships to degree of uncertainty. Systematic intersubject differences in expressed curiosity were obtained. (Author/SJL)
