comment When should a percentage be written as a percentage and when should it be written x out of n?
@Eoin if you leave ratio bias as an answer I'll certainly upvote it. Thanks for that information

@Josh based on your comment I believe my first comment still holds true. I'm not sure what relevance it has on the question which is the last sentence in my original post. If you want to get hung up on my use of the word better than I can edit it out. "I'm looking for research on how people perceive actual percentages vs n out of x." Now, if I'm missing something and you believe there is a fundamental difference in the answer if the word better is left in vs removed please comment. Otherwise I'm still not sure what difference any of this makes on the question.

@Josh What difference would it make? Its kinda like you're saying you can't explain how people perceive relative speed / motion without knowing if the objective is to feel fast or feel slow. If you understand how people perceive motion you should be able to make something appear fast or slow. I'm looking for a similar understanding regarding how people perceive percentages.

comment Why do we prefer visually aligned objects?
I asked this question and got a great reference which has led me to a few more articles once I knew more about what to search for: cogsci.stackexchange.com/questions/522/…

Thanks I got it now. I'm going to mark this as an answer on Friday if user568458 doesn't post his/hers by then. Just want to give him/her a chance since s/he helped get the question reopened. And those books do look very good and as soon as I can afford to I plan to order them.

That link doesn't go anywhere? I tried at work the other day and just got around to trying at home thinking maybe its the old OS. Not sure why people are upvoting it unless I'm missing something. I looked around the site a bit and didn't find any open access articles.

@Comptrol I'm working on that, I was in a very long chat conversation and no definitive solution was found for asking.

What list or poll? I asked for one clear question as you just said "Please provide me with good references for visual perception pertaining to graphic design" I included spatial perception because I think the two go together but it certainly isn't multiple questions. It was however multiple questions AFTER Josh edited it and it became a question for references AND a question about how light is viewed by the human eye which I again never even asked. I would still like an answer to my question.
