The invariance hypothesis and the intuitive perceiver: a developmental study
D W Kaess
Received 29 June 1973
Abstract. The influence of the range of angle variation in shape-constancy perception has been studied. Six- to nineteen-year-olds were presented rectangles in three sets differing in the range of angles to which the rectangles were rotated. Contrary to predictions based upon the invariance hypothesis, shape-constancy performance became more veridical, and response consistency increased, as the angles to which the forms were rotated were made more similar to each other. Consequently, it was concluded that observers at all ages studied used the intuitive mode of perceptual operation in the shape-constancy task.
