The suppression of the other and
Given that participants did not know when they read each sentence whether a later sentence would imply the same or a different meaning, the following can be concluded. Abstract It is proposed that there are group differences in suppression skill, and one such grouping is the distinction between more versus less skilled university-aged comprehenders.
Finally, with regard to group differences in suppression skill, less skilled comprehenders, presumably because they are characterized by less efficient suppression, incur little cost but reap equivalent benefits. Experiments supporting this proposal and demonstrating that university-aged adults differ in their ability to suppress irrelevant, inappropriate, potentially interfering information are reviewed.
Indeed, that is what was observed. Moreover, it will be interesting to see if research can identify other situations in which group differences in suppression skill are advantageous. Therefore, by definition, interference cannot be inhibited but it can be suppressed. Medvedev made the comments on his video blog, on the occasion of a holiday devoted to the memory of victims of repression. However, when we presented the test words ms after participants read the sentences, the more skilled comprehenders no longer showed any interference, and this suggests that the more skilled comprehenders had successfully suppressed the inappropriate meanings of the homonyms. The root of suppression is the verb suppress. Finally, with regard to group differences in suppression skill, less skilled comprehenders, presumably because they are characterized by less efficient suppression, incur little cost but reap equivalent benefits. Our same-meaning primes and different-meaning primes were identical to those of our first experiment. In this experiment, we again preceded each target sentence by one of three prime sentences. The difference was just as great as when they had to accept an inappropriate meaning. Although response times differed between the two skill groups on one task, but not on the other, participants in the two skill groups did not differ in their accuracy on the two tasks. During the experiment, they were given feedback after each trial as to whether their responses to each test word were correct or incorrect. Thus, although less skilled comprehenders are characterized by less efficient suppression, they demonstrate enhancement equally efficient to that of more skilled comprehenders. To repress is to hold something back or to prevent an act of volition, especially by force.
On the other 20 of the 40 trials, the correct answer was no because either the test word was unrelated to both the sentence-final word and the sentence, or because the test word was related to both the sentence-final word and the sentence.
The same was true when we investigated each item's standard deviation.
These data support the hypothesis that the costs incurred by reading a different-meaning prime are due to suppression; less skilled comprehenders, who are characterized by less efficient suppression, incur fewer costs.
As you can see, there are slight differences between the two words, especially when applied to the individual.
