Development of Cognitive Averaging: When Light and Light Make Dark.
Jager, Stephan; Wilkening, Friedrich
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v79 n4 p323-45 Aug 2001
Two experiments examined developmental changes in reasoning about intensive quantities--predicting mixture intensity of pairs of liquids with different intensities of red color. Results showed that cognitive averaging in this domain developed late and slowly. Predominating up to 12 years was an extensivity bias, a strong tendency to use rules that held for extensive but not intensive quantities. (Author/KB)
