Generation of Random Sequences by Human Subjects: a Critical Survey of Literature

Abstract

The subjective concept of randomness is used in many areas of psychological research to explain a variety of experimental results. One method to study randomness is to have subjects generate random series. Unfortunately, few results of the experiments that used this method lend themselves to comparison and synthesis because the investigators employed such a variety of experimental conditions and definitions of mathematical randomness. Some suggestions for future research are made.
