M. M. Taylor, "Effect of Anchoring and Distance Perception on the Reproduction of Forms," Perceptual and Motor Skills 12, 1961

PATTERN OF ERRORS OF REPRODUCTION OF POSITION OF DOT

It seems possible that the error tendencies observed in Exp. I can be attrtibuted to the anchoring effect of the card edges on the perception of the positions of points on the cards. If such is the case, then providing further marks on either the stimulus card or the response card or both should influence the error pattern.
