Normative and prescriptive implications of individual differences

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (5):668-669 (2000)

Abstract
Stanovich & West (S&W) have two goals, one concerned with the evaluation of normative models, the other with development of prescriptive models. Individual differences have no bearing on normative models, which are justified by analysis, not consensus. Individual differences do, however, suggest where it is possible to try to improve human judgments and decisions through education rather than computers.
