HUMAN PROBLEM SOLVING 11/03/2010 LECTURE STUDY QUESTIONS The questions do not necessarily follow the order that they were or will be discussed in class. Also a number of these will come up after this week. L.65. Suppose four cards each depict a colored shape. The shape is either a diamond or a circle, and the color is either black or white. I pick a particular one of the colors and a particular one of the shapes, but you do not know which ones I picked. I define a "THOG" as a card which either has my color or my shape, but not both. Your job is to say which cards are THOGs. I'll help you. The black diamond is a THOG. What, if anything, can you conclude about the other three cards? L.66. On an island there are two groups of people, Ts and Fs. Ts tell the truth always and Fs always tell lies. Suppose you pick an English speaking native, without knowing their group, and you ask them "What group are you in? What can you predict about the person’s answer? L.67. A logical wizard offers to allow you one statement that is true or false. He gives a set $10 reward for a false statement and an amount other than $10 for a true statement. Which statement compels the wizard to give you a trillion dollars? L.68. What do the letters in TOTE stand for in Miller, Galanter, and Pribram’s theory. (It’s in the book as well as the lecture)?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
