Cold and hot cognition: quantum probability theory and realistic psychological modeling

Corr, P. J. (2013). Cold and hot cognition: quantum probability theory and realistic psychological modeling. Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 36(3), pp. 282-283. doi: 10.1017/S0140525X12002907

Abstract

Typically, human decision making is emotionally "hot" and does not conform to "cold" classical probability (CP) theory. As quantum probability (QP) theory emphasises order, context, superimposition states, and nonlinear dynamic effects, one of its major strengths may be its power to unify formal modeling and realistic psychological theory (e.g., information uncertainty, anxiety, and indecision, as seen in the Prisoner's Dilemma).
