Naive Story Models and Mental Correlations: Why Correlation (A to B) Is Not Equal to Correlation (B to A)

EXTENDED ABSTRACT - Judgments quality has been an issue of considerable interest in decision-making, if only because the quality of judgments places a ceiling on decision quality. Prior research has documented that human judgment tends to be quite poor (Meehl, 1954; Dawes, 1979) where individuals often appear very poorly calibrated to the data.
