From two or more options thus presented, subjects choose the one they prefer. They state, for instance, whether they want to buy good A at price X, or good B at price Y. In matching tasks, one element of information is missing. The individual, for instance, knows the price of good A, but not of good B. The subject is asked to state the appropriate price of B, given the price of A. If one has two groups, selected by the same criteria, the outcomes to these tasks differ markedly. 78 Such psychological findings do at least make prediction more demanding for an interaction partner.
