CROSS-CULTURAL COMPARISON OF RESPONSES TO THE MONTY HALL DILEMMA
Abstract:Students in Brazil, China, Sweden, and the United States were compared as to how they responded to a two-stage conditional probability problem. In each culture, there was not only a significant tendency to stick with an initial decision when they should stick, but also to stick when they should switch. On this type of problem, the four cultures did not differ significantly.
