Sample text

Now suppose there is an object about which you know only that it has a 3-inch diameter, and consider two questions about it: First, is it more likely to be a pizza or a quarter? And second, is it more similar to pizzas or to quarters? The answer to the first question clearly seems to be that the object is a pizza; for even though 3 inches is much smaller than the pizzas you usually encounter it is easy to imagine making one this small. It is harder (though not impossible) to imagine how a 3-inch quarter could come about.

According to Medin and Schaffer, if you have to decide whether a given instance is a member of one of several categories, you do it by retrieving from memory a category member that the target instance reminds you of. The member that you retrieve then determines the category of the new instance. For example, if the target instance happens to remind you of a particular egg - maybe the one you had for breakfast today — then you will classify this new instance as an egg too. For our purposes, the important point is that the instance you are reminded of is assumed to be entirely a function of similarity.
