A total of 15 analyzers and 15 non-analyzers were given an initial five standard trials and then 58 units of alternation practice on the Iowa Pursuitmeter. Each unit of alternation practice consisted of three reversed trials followed by one standard trial. The specific purpose of the study was to determine whether or not individual differences in the amount of interference displayed during alternation practice can be attributed, at least in part, to a tendency to analyze. The results lend some support for the view that the analyzers were less susceptible to interference than the non-analyzers.
