First, there is the case in which one person learns from another about the skillful performance of the task (Earle, 1973). A second kind of interpersonal learning can be studied in a procedure that adds a phase to the experiment, after the interaction between people, where the participants are separated and each is asked to judge new cases as well as to predict the other participant’s judgments of these cases. , how their own judgmental systems are changed due to exposure to their partners). ) Many of the same factors that have been manipulated in MCPL studies have also been 19 examined in investigations of interpersonal learning and conflict.

A number of chapters (to be discussed shortly in a somewhat different context) suggest alternatives to the LME’s implicit linear and static modeling of both the environment and the organism. Still others consider various mathematical extensions or embeddings of the LME in other decompositions of performance (chapter 5; chapter 6; also see Stewart, 2001). Individual Learning Brunswik portrayed organisms as having to adapt to environments whose distal properties were indicated only probabilistically by proximal cues.
