comment When can anchoring backfire?
@JakeWestfall In my actual study, the decision was dichotomous, so people were either 100% right or 100% wrong for each judgment. Each individual's accuracy rate is the proportion of accurate responses over several judgments. So, if you got 3 out of 4 right, you had a 75% accuracy rate. Then, I compared the mean accuracy rates between the two groups.

True, it is not a classic anchoring scenario.

comment Aesthetic preference for even or odd numbers
I'd add that we have 5 fingers on a hand which likely also influences it's popularity. We use base-10 probably because we have 10 fingers.

comment What constructs help explain limited cognitive processing and the cognitive effects of rules that limit decision making choices?
Lots to think about! I appreciate the response.

comment Method for evaluating how emotionally evocative a question is?
@BenBrocka - I like the idea. I don't have access to an fMRI right now, but it seems like it would be feasible to validate instruments using one.

comment Method for evaluating how emotionally evocative a question is?
@JohnPick - Right now, I'm not interested in differentiating between emotions. I don't care if somebody is angry or frightened, as long as the arousal is high. I'd probably flag somebody if they showed very high arousal to a question when compared to their peers, or to their individual baseline of responses to benign questions. Hope that helps.
