The Overlaping Constructs of Analytical and Productive Analogical Reasoning

Student: Olga Maslenkova

Supervisor: Yulia A. Tyumeneva

Faculty: Institute of Education

Educational Programme: Measurements in Psychology and Education (Master)

Year of Graduation: 2018

In this study, we investigated the overlaping constructs of analytical and productive analogical Reasoning. The participants (N = 98) were creating analogies for pairs of words, solve four-term analogies (A:B::C:D), and completed nonverbal abstract reasoning tasks. A part of the participants (N = 53) evaluated the understanding of the sources to which they were creating analogies. The relation between the quantity of created analogies and analytical analogical reasoning is weak. This relation decreases then we are controlling the understanding the source. In addition, we evaluated the semantic similarity between created analogies and their sources. We discovered that the semantic similarity of analogies depends on the individual characteristics of participants and on the type of source. The semantic similarity of analogies is not related to nonverbal abstract reasoning.
