Memory vs Mental Picture: Can Learning be Quantum? An Experimental Study

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

In this paper, we will put forward an original experiment to reveal empirical “anomalies” in the process of acquisition, elaboration and retrieval of information in the context of reading. We show that the acquisition and elaboration of information leads to the formation of a mental picture that may be incompatible with the information stored in memory. To answer some specific questions, individuals make use of a mental picture rather than combine their stored information appropriately. Our hypothesis is that quantum cognition theory provides a fruitful interpretative framework to account for these anomalies. Finally, we provide evidence that individuals with a low CRT (Cognitive Reflection Test) score tend to demonstrate, more often than not, this particular behavior. Keywords: quantum cognition, learning, experimental economics JEL: C91 C90 D83 C21 URL: http://d.repec.org/n?u=&r=cbe
