Understanding the psychological interpretation of numbers is of both practical and theoretical interest. In classical magnitude estimation, respondents match numbers to sensations and in magnitude production they select tones that stand in a prescribed numerical ratio to a given tone. The present work focusses on evaluating several possible, and related, forms for this numerical distortion function, or weighting function, W . The main form, of which a power function is a special case, is the… CONTINUE READING
