Dynamical Trap Effect in Virtual Stick Balancing
We present the experimental evidence of the dynamical traps model describing the human fuzzy rationality in the dynamical systems framework. The results of the experiments on virtual stick balancing are compared to the results of the previous studies on the dynamical trap effect. According to the results obtained, we suggest that the dynamical traps model actually captures certain essential features of human fuzzy rationality and therefore may serve as an alternative to the traditional notion of stable equilibrium in describing the behavior of human as an element of complex social systems.
