Sample text

Take two couples which will be successively handled by the procedure, (w,x) and (x,y). Assume further that w is longer than both x and y. Because xy, the couple is also rearranged and becomes (y,w). At this point, the three sticks are ordered thus: x y w. In summary, then, w has moved two places to the right, because it was longer than the two sticks with which it was compared.

The only positive knowledge, therefore, which 30 CHAPfER2 will be true of the final configuration regardless of the beginning one, is Point 5: the longer stick of the row will be at the last position on the right. This, therefore, is the correct answer to the problem. HIERARCHY OF PROTOCOLS In their reflection on the problem, the subjects encounter the complexities described in the previous section successively. It is possible to arrange (most of) their conceptions in a linear order, each level being related to the previous one by the integration of an additional aspect of the problem.

The first is obvious enough: because they had to predict the final configuration, trying out the procedure could solve the problem directly. The subject might end up with ordered couples, say, or with an ordered series, and this would answer the question. If conscientious or genuinely interested, the subject might then also try to see whether the same final configuration would always be produced, or whether the initial configuration has an influence (as it in fact does). Trying out the procedure even once would have served as a most convenient source of hypotheses, which could then be verified either inductively, by trying out more cases, or deductively, by proving that the same pattern is always obtained.
