Many human activities require precise judgments about the physical properties and dynamics of multiple objects. Classic work suggests that people’s intuitive models of physics are relatively poor and error-prone, based on highly simplified heuristics that apply only in special cases or incorrect general principles (e.g., impetus instead of momentum). These conclusions seem at odds with the breadth and sophistication of naive physical reasoning in real-world situations. Our work measures the… CONTINUE READING
