Project 4: Cognitive and Statistical Modeling of Subjective Expectations

Prof. Dr. Daniel Heck (Psychological Methods)

PhD Students: Florence Bockting, Oliver Schmidt

This project focuses on cognitive and statistical modeling of subjective expectations in areas such as judgment and decision making and social cognition. The project aims at developing a model for the measurement of interindividual differences in expectations about the truth of factual statements. The model will be tested empirically in web studies to investigate which people tend to belief false statements (e.g., “alternative facts”) and why expectations about the truth of such statements are not revised in the light of contradictory evidence.
