  3. R. Alexander Bentley, Michael J. O'Brien & Paul Ormerod (2011). Quality Versus Mere Popularity: A Conceptual Map for Understanding Human Behavior. Mind and Society 10 (2):181-191.
    We propose using a bi-axial map as a heuristic for categorizing different dynamics involved in the relationship between quality and popularity. The east–west axis represents the degree to which an agent’s decision is influenced by those of other agents. This ranges from the extreme western edge, where an agent learns individually (no outside influence), to the extreme eastern edge, where an agent is influenced by a large number of other agents. The vertical axis represents how easy or difficult it is (...)

  4. R. Alexander Bentley (2007). Social Complexity in Behavioral Models. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 30 (1):19-19.
    Although the beliefs, preferences, and constraints (BPC) model may account for individuals independently making simple decisions, it becomes less useful the more complex the social setting and the decisions themselves become. Perhaps rather than seek to unify their field under one model, behavioral scientists could explore when and why the BPC model generally applies versus fails to apply as a null hypothesis. (Published Online April 27 2007).
