The Tri-Process Model and Serial Associative Cognition

(p.61) 4 The Tri-Process Model and Serial Associative Cognition
Rationality and the Reflective Mind

Keith E. Stanovich

Oxford University Press

This chapter fleshes out the full tri-process model (on autonomous, algorithmic, and reflective levels) of the mind. Fully decoupled cognitive simulation is distinguished from another type of Type 2 cognition, a cognition termed serial associative cognition. Three different types of cognitive decoupling are also distinguished. In the override case, decoupling involves taking offline the connection between a primary representation and response programming. In the second case—the case of comprehensive simulation—decoupling involves segregating simulated models of the world from primary representations. A third type of decoupling involves interrupting serial associative cognition—that is, decoupling from the next step in an associative sequence that would otherwise direct thought.

Keywords:   tri-process model, cognitive simulation, Type 2 cognition, cognitive decoupling, comprehensive simulation, serial associative cognition
