Typological thinking, statistical significance, and the methodological divergence of experimental psychology and economics

  • Charles F. Blaich (a1) and Humberto Barreto (a2)

Abstract

While correctly describing the differences in current practices between experimental psychologists and economists, Hertwig and Ortmann do not provide a compelling explanation for these differences. Our explanation focuses on the fact that psychologists view the world as composed of categories and types. This discrete organizational scheme results in merely testing nulls and wider variation in observed practices in experimental psychology.
