Developmental Differences in Memory-Based Intrusions and Self-Serving Statistical Reasoning Biases.
Klaczynski, Paul A.; Fauth, James
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v43 n4 p539-66 Oct 1997
Explored self-serving biases in use of statistical "law of large numbers" (LLN) principle. Found that, on goal-enhancing and goal-neutral problems, adolescents were more prone to schema-based memory intrusions and adults were more prone to exemplar-based intrusions. Both age groups used LLN more frequently on goal-threatening than on goal-enhancing or goal-neutral evidence. Information-processing style predicted young adults' self-serving biases. (Author/KB)
