Abstract

The complexity of stimuli with high "constructed complexity" was judged by 40 subjects on an equal-appearing intervals scale. Earlier studies had employed stimuli of lower constructed complexity, and it was felt that the judgment task would prove more difficult when the constructed complexity was increased. Results showed that subjects experienced no difficulty in making the judgments-as constructed complexity increased, so did judged complexity. It was suggested that magnitude estimation might be a more appropriate means of assessing judged complexity than equal-appearing intervals for future studies.
