Abstract

Introspective reports showed that mental imagery is used in making mental comparisons among concrete objects in terms of both physical properties and abstract properties, but not in making mental comparisons among abstract items in terms of abstract properties, nor among individual words in terms of nonsemantic properties. This confirms previous research implicating mental imagery in symbolic comparison tasks.
