N flatter than the correct curves for N = 10. 05). 068) lies between the correct sampling variance for N = 2 and that for N = 3. In binomial distributions, the mean generally coincides with the mode. SO, the short tail must be higher than the long tail; see, for example, the correct distribution for N - 10 in Figure 4. 63. Thus, although the mode of the subjective sampling distribution is properly located at the most representative value, the mean is displaced towards the long tail. , Cohen and Hansel (1956), Peterson, DuCharme, and Edwards (1968).

Binomial (Peterson, DuCharme, & Edwards, 1968; Wheeler & Beach, 1968) in two respects. First, the -earlier work was concerned with sample sizes much smaller than those of the present study. Second, and more important, the number of events among which probabilities were distributed was not the same for different sample sizes: for a sample of size N, Ss evaluated N + 1 outcomes. In the present study, in contrast, Ss evaluate the same number of categories for all sample sizes. The invariance of the subjective sampling distribution with respect to N, which is demonstrated in Figures 1, 2 and 3, may not hold exactly when the number of categories varies, or when the sample is small enough to permit enumeration of possibilities.

Predictions by representativeness do not follow this rule. It was shown in the previous section that people did not regress toward more frequent categories w hen expected accuracy of predictions was reduced. The present section demonstrates an analogous failure in the context of numerical prediction. Prediction of outcomes versus evaluation of inputs Suppose on e is told that a college freshman has been described by a counselor as intelligent, self-confident, well-read, hard working, and inquisitive.
