That is, 40 percent make predictions consistent with representativeness. For groups who are not paid for accuracy, the corresponding figure is 47 percent. 1 that when the sample consists of 3 ups and 3 downs, the proportion predicting that the underlying regime process is strong drops to 7 percent. This is consistent with representativeness, although it is also consistent with the use of Bayes rule.
