Hierarchical models of simple mechanisms underlying confidence in decision making

Merkle, Edgar; Smithson, Michael; Verkuilen, Jay


Choice confidence is a central measure in psychological decision research, often being reported on a probabilistic scale. Simple mechanisms that describe the psychological processes underlying choice confidence, including those based on error and confirmation biases, have typically received support via fits to data averaged over subjects. While averaged data ease model development, they can also destroy important aspects of the confidence data distribution. In this paper, we develop a...[Show more]
