Two Different Views on the World Around Us: the World of Uniformity Versus Diversity

We propose that entity theorists are likely to expect a world of “uniformity.” As such, they easily infer a population statistic from a small sample with confidence. In contrast, incremental theorists are likely to presume a world of “diversity:” they “hesitate” to infer a population statistic from a small sample.
