Overview

Langholtz, Antoinette T. Marty, and Christopher T. Ball (all College of William and Mary, Virginia, and Eric C. Nolan (U. of California- Davis) seem to be researchers in behavioral science, through they are shy about saying so. They report the results of their study on how people make decisions about allocating resources, some factors and situations that affect the decision performance, cognitive strategies people use, and whether there is a normative standard to which performance can be compared. As in most behavioral science studies, their subjects were limited to US undergraduates or military personnel, and they challenge anthropologists to investigate cross- cultural differences.
