Is talking about painting like talking about wine?

ثنائية استعراض خيار تاجر mondrian-oele-near-woods1There is often debate about the nature of  ‘fine wine’ and many who argue that, at its best, wine is ‘art’. I am sympathetic to this view although I also believe that anyone who declares themself an artist should be accepted as one regardless of my view of their ‘work’ (which would not be acceptable to many arbiters of ‘taste’ who support the notion of ‘expert’ critics). I am unlikely to settle the subjective v objective debates, and am of course a psychologist not a philosopher but, a recent paper suggests to me that the way in which we think and talk about art shares cognitive commonalities with our talk about wine.

free charts binary options In a recent paper Ayumi Yamada (abstract here) asked one group of students to talk about (verbalise) their reasons for liking 2 different Mondrian works. One of these, the very beautiful Woods Near Oele (above left), is representational whereas the other New York City is abstract (below right). The other group of students acted as a non-verbalising control but also had to decide which they ‘liked best’.

Those participants in the verbalisation condition who’d been challenged to say why they liked the paintings were subsequently biased towards choosing the representational painting as their favourite. By contrast, participants in the verbalisation condition who’d been challenged to articulate their reasons for disliking the paintings were subsequently biased towards choosing the abstract painting as their favourite.

Buy Tadalafil Tastylia 20mg without prescription Yamada thinks that the apparent ease with which we can verbalise our feelings affects our later judgements. Because participants found it easier to talk about why they liked the representational painting compared with the abstract one, this biased them in favour of the representational painting. Similarly, participants who had to talk about their dislike for the art, found this easier for the representational painting, which subsequently biased them against it.

forex valutakurser pund The finding is consistent with past research showing that attempting to verbalise our feelings can distort our later choices. For example, a prior study showed that participants who attempted to explain their preferences for different jams subsequently showed less agreement with expert ratings than did control participants.

opzioni binarie costi bassi I think Shakespeare nailed the unreliability of reputations which as Iago tells Cassio in Othello are ’oft got without merit and lost without deserving’. Although it should always be borne in mind that Iago, like most people, had an agenda when making the claim…
