This kind of learning can have much in common with science. Whereas science is a “pure” activity, with a single goal, behavioral learning has two goals: learning about the situation and obtaining immediate success or reward in the task at hand. These goals frequently compete (Schwartz, 1982). We are often faced with a choice of repeating some action that has served us reasonably well in the past or taking some new action, hoping either that it might yield an even better outcome or that we can obtain evidence that will help us decide what to do in the future.

Each column represents an apartment and each row gives figures on matters such as rent, size, and distance from work. If the subject scans across the rent row first and then seeks no other information about the apartments with the highest rent, we can infer that she has eliminated those apartments on the basis of their high rent. To use this method effectively, the experimenter must be clever in setting up the experiment, so that such inferences can be made.
