社会知觉预期优势效应节俭化机制动机注意Social Perceptual Prediction Superiority Effect Parsimony Mechanism Motivation Attention



The superiority effect of social perceptual prediction is a well established phenomenon in social cognition literature, whereby predictable stimuli are better recognized than unpredictable stimuli. The current paper describes some important perceptual cues and the experimental paradigms of the superiority effect. In addition, we focus on the parsimonious mechanism for the superiority effect of social perceptual prediction that consists of the translation mechanism and coding strategy. Future research should investigate the translation mechanism from various perspectives, as well as the relation between motivation and predictive coding. There is also a need to clarify whether individuals’ experience plays a key role in the translation mechanism.
