I am not a psychologist. I do research in conditional/probabilistic reasoning. I am curious if there has been any work on how do people make judgments about probabilistic independence and causal independence, and are these judgments driven by the same or different mechanisms. Many thanks in advance.

  • Could you expand on this question a bit please? What do you mean by probabilistic independence vs causal independence? What would the elicitation tasks look like that prompt people to make one or the other kind of judgment? – steveLangsford Oct 12 at 17:50
