My project seeks to test the hypothesis that the weighting of attributes in multi-attribute decision making is a top-down process dependent on the availability of cognitive resources. Certain studies have already suggested that changes in the amount of cognitive resources determine different strategies in information processing (Wilson & Schooler, 1991; Hoffmann, von Helversen, & Rieskamp, 2013). Manipulating attention through a cognitive load task could reveal differences between processing information about cues in an optimal or otherwise heuristic manner (e.g. tallying, Gigerenzer et al., 1999).
