A relationship between stimulus and response of "ideomotor compatibility" was defined as occurring to the extent that the stimulus resembles normally occurring sensory feedback from the response (e.g., saying a word in response to hearing it said). It was proposed that the stimulus of highly ideomotorcompatible combinations should effectively select the response without burdening limited-capacity decision processes of the central nervous system. Accordingly, (a) perfectly efficient time sharing… CONTINUE READING
