Individual differences in epistemological values influence reasoning. Klacyznski (2000) investigated biases in adolescents’ reasoning. Adolescents were asked to evaluate evidence relevant to their beliefs about relations between either social class or religion and variables such as parenting, morality, and satisfaction with life. When reasoning about social class or religion, adolescents used more sophisticated scientific reasoning strategies when rejecting evidence that was inconsistent with their prior theories, and made more superficial heuristic judgments when evaluating evidence that was consistent with their prior theories.

Five-year-olds usually did not recognize indeterminacy on one vs. two feature problems, but performed somewhat better on two vs. two feature problems, reporting indeterminacy about half of the time. In a second experiment, children often overlooked indeterminacy on problems where the pieces in one box matched the target object and the other box was closed so that its contents were not visible. Fay and Klahr (1996) concluded that children often follow a positive capture rule. That is, when children identify a single matching box, they judge that they can tell which box was used to construct the target object.
