SIPS 2019 - Individual differences in visual perception: Attractive and repulsive context effects


How we perceive a visual stimulus depends not only on the stimulus itself, but also on the individual in question and the context in which the stimulus is presented. Earlier research found both attractive and repulsive context effects on perception (Snyder et al., 2015). These effects have been studied mostly on a group level (e.g., Schwiedrzik et al., 2014). The present study will investigate whether consistent individual differences exist in (the strength of) these attractive and repulsive context effects in a paradigm using dot lattice stimuli, and if so, whether these relate to other individual difference characteristics (e.g., personality questionnaires). The study will provide insight in how individuals combine previous and current input in their perception.
