Unformatted text preview: direction of motion of the observer, so the meeting is on Friday.   With time ­moving, forward is in the direction of motion of time, and the meeting should now be on a Monday.   Prediction: spatial primes should affect the way participants think about time; moving ­ego spatial primes should induce more Friday responses Results   71.3% of the participants responded in a prime ­consistent manner. Egomoving prime Control Monday 27% 69% 46% Friday Timemoving prime 73% 31% 54% χ2(1,N=56)=5.2; p<0.05. Boroditsky (2000) conclusions   People use spatial schemas when reasoning about time   But to test for unidirectionality, you’d need to show   Spatial primes affect spatial reasoning   Temporal primes affects time reasoning   Spatial primes affects time reasoning   Temporal primes DO NOT affect spatial reasoning   So Boroditsky repeated the experiment, in each of those configurations Exp. 2   Research question:   We know that space reasoning primes temporal reasoning. What about time ­space, time ­time, and space ­space priming? Method   There were now temporal or spatial true ­false primes, and temporal or spatial ambiguous target questions Spatial primes: Method   Temporal primes:   Half employed the ego ­moving schema On Thursday, Saturday is before us   Half employed the time ­moving schema Thursday comes before Saturday Method   The ambiguous temporal target...
