Monty Hall, Monkeys and M&Ms (Link)

April 10, 2008

More on the topic of probabilities and statistics…

This article was interesting to me because it deals with both a classic probability brain-twister (the Monty Hall problem) and cognitive dissonance (I am working on a post on heuristics and biases). Check out this NYT article regarding a potential fundamental Monte Hall error in some experiments supporting cognitive dissonance.
