Results showed no discrimination on the recognition test – they were completely unable to tell old forms from new ones, but participants could discriminate on the feeling test, as they consistently favored old forms over new ones.


A shorter time of exposure was necessary for people to name the normal cards than the anomalous ones.

On the other hand informed consent could not be given because this would affect the results of the experiment as demand characteristics could be displayed making them less reliable. It seems clear to me that ubgelski picture has no objective identity by itself, and that all of its coherence is a reflection of the kind of sense that the subject can make out of it.

Operational Hypothesis for Bugelski and Alampay ()?

A schema plural ‘schemata’ or ‘schemas’ is a kind of mental template or framework which we use to make sense of things. Theories of perception and the concept of structure. The other aim is to understand the conventions ahd writing psychological investigations using a simple experiment in order to practice this.

Various kinds of context are important in shaping our interpretation of what we see. This is the formula for chi squared: A control group was shown no pictures beforehand. Participants were then asked to write down what they saw in each of the pictures, but their responses were not recorded by the experimenters. In this way, nothing we perceive is illusion or representation but a natural presentation of our entangled sense as as it has accumulated through individual, social, cultural, anthropological, zoological, biological, chemical, and physical experiences.

Psychological factors can have a profound influence on how humans interpret in coming sensory stimuli.
