comment Are there “6 degrees of separation” for ideas?
Could you further explain how you see the 6 degrees of separation idea relating to the general issue of the brain or mind implicitly connecting ideas?

@jeff It's good that it's possible, but I get the impression that there might be additional issues with longer studies around motivating participants to complete the task in the first place and ensuring that they perform the task conscientiously.

@ofri I imagine speed of recruitment and cost effectiveness are the two main motivations. For example, If I could get 200 conscientious participants to complete a 30 minute study for US\$5 or US\$10 per participant, and it could all be finalised in a day or so, that would make my life a lot easier. mturk manages payment and it also manages the mapping of free time to tasks.

You're right. I thought I remembered seeing a question like this before. It looks like I even answered it :-)

revised Do people estimate combined probabilities differently to uncombined ones?
when i first saw the question I thought you were asking a purely statistics question; thus, I tweaked the title to make it clear it is about human perception of probability; feel free to change if you don't like

@juilee interesting question. I encourage you to ask a separate question about this, perhaps with a link to this one.
