9 The Quest for Take-the-Best
Ecological Rationality

Arndt Bröder

This chapter describes the course of development of experimental studies on the adaptive toolbox conducted in the author’s laboratory. In a dialectical process, experimental results informed the specification of more precise hypotheses that, in turn, led to new empirical questions. In the course of this work, individual differences, the adaptivity of strategies, and the impact of memory-based information search on using simple heuristics like take-the-best were assessed.

Keywords:   take-the-best, experiments, cognitive processes, memory-based search, adaptivity
