    Defective Truth Tables and Falsifying Cards: Two Measurement Models Yield No Evidence of an Underlying Fleshing-Out Propensity.Jean-François Bonnefon & Stéphane Vautier - 2008 - Thinking and Reasoning 14 (3):231-243.
    Using a latent variable modelling strategy we study individual differences in patterns of answers to the selection task and to the truth table task. Specifically we investigate the prediction of mental model theory according to which the individual tendency to select the false consequent card (in the selection task) is negatively correlated with the tendency to judge the false antecedent cases as irrelevant (in the truth table task). We fit a psychometric model to two large samples ( N = 486, (...)

    The Operationalization of General Hypotheses Versus the Discovery of Empirical Laws in Psychology.Stéphane Vautier - 2011 - Philosophia Scientiae 15 (2):105-122.
    Psychology students learn to operationalize 'general hypotheses' as a paradigm of scientific Psychology: relatively vague ideas result in an attempt to reject the null hypothesis in favour of an alternative hypothesis, a so-called research hypothesis, which operationalizes the general idea. Such a practice turns out to be particularly at odds with the discovery of empirical laws. An empirical law is defined as a nomothetic gap emerging from a reference system of the form O x M(X) x M(Y), where O is (...)

    The Instruction Set of Questionnaires Can Affect the Structure of the Data: Application to Self-Rated State Anxiety.Stéphane Vautier, Etienne Mullet & Sylvie Bourdet-Loubère - 2003 - Theory and Decision 54 (3):249-259.
    The present study tested the assumption that self-ratings, such as those used for measuring state anxiety, do not measure a one-dimensional transcendent entity but involve decisions based on a multi-dimensional judgment. Two groups of subjects were presented with a balanced nine-item state anxiety questionnaire. Each group received a different set of instructions (a standard set and an altered instruction set suggesting unidimensionality of the questions in the questionnaire). It was hypothesized that this change in instructions would impact the structure of (...)
