Abstract

Two methods for constructing random shapes were compared as to their effect upon latency of the associative response. Attneave and Arnoult had hypothesized that their Method II shapes would contain less stimulus information than would their Method I shapes. In the present study this hypothesis was substantiated only for female subjects. It was concluded that a reduction in stimulus information could not alone account for these results and that subject variables such as set and response threshold variability, must be included in the interpretation of results.
