If these questions are both answered with "yes," this serves as the initial phenomenon. To explain it, we may postulate that the reader has a mental representation of carnation, flower and plant as well as the information that there exists a class inclusion relationship between them that can be verified. Yet registering the answers generates a second phenomenon: The first question is answered more quickly than the second. To explain this time difference we must specify to some degree the processes which operate when subjects try to understand and answer the question.

We interpret this finding to mean that in order to attain the information on the form of movement, one must enter the motor buffer and read off this information from the motor program, and that this is facilitated by performing an action. Thus, this finding indicates a motor mode of thought. CONCLUSION The conclusion that emerges from the data is clear: The human information processing system is composed of subsystems with their own representations which conserve specific information and in which specific processes operate.

The smallest elements which can be compared, and for which a match or mismatch may be stated, are predicates and arguments. Thus, verification time is dependent on the number of such matches and mismatches, not on the particular arguments involved. Stating a match or mismatch takes the same amount of time for any two elements compared. Now imagine a theory which postulates that arguments are composed out of smaller elements, for instance semantic features. If the comparison process of two arguments operates on their underlying features, the time required to compare them will depend on the number of features comprising the arguments.
