To solve problems associated with the likelihood of an event, humans tend to use (classical/empirical) probability, which is based on (experience/

reasoning), while pigeons seem to use ________ probability, which is based on ________ . This results in better performance by (pigeons/humans) in the Monty Hall dilemma.

Answer & Explanation (1)

Here is a tip:
Human beings tend to use simple method of equal chance to equal choices when they need to make a selection, birds use a method which they learnt in past.

Explanation
Monty hall dilemma is associated with a cognitive puzzle that demands a person to use the concept of probability to solve the puzzle.
In situations that bring options and people need to guess in that condition, humans tend to use the technique of probability (logical reasoning). If there are three choices, then each choice will have the same probability of being selected, that is, each choice has one by three chances of getting selected. For instance, in the dice rolling task, all the faces of dice have equal probability to occur.
Birds when given a chance to select would rather rely on their experience to come up with a solution. If a bird is taught to open three different doors and each door has a different outcome, after repeated exposure, the bird will peck at the exact door which will provide reinforcement.
Humans are more biased with their logical reasoning ability, which hinders solving the problem acurately.
