Performance decrements often occur when people are under high cognitive load because they switch to less demanding--and often less accurate--cognitive strategies. Although cognitive load disturbs performance over a wide range of tasks, it may also carry benefits. In the experiments reported here, we showed that judgment performance can increase under cognitive load. Participants solved a multiple-cue judgment task in which high performance could be achieved by using a similarity-based judgment strategy but not by using a more demanding rule-based judgment strategy. Accordingly, cognitive load induced a shift to a similarity-based judgment strategy, which consequently led to more accurate judgments. By contrast, shifting to a similarity-based strategy harmed judgments in a task best solved by using a rule-based strategy. These results show how important it is to consider the cognitive strategies people rely on to understand how people perform in demanding work environments.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Rieskamp, Jörg</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:creator>von Helversen, Bettina</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Hoffmann, Janina A.</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
