Abstract : Two experiments are reported in which a visual stimulus of one hue was paired with two lighter weights and a stimulus of a different hue was paired with two heavier weights. The purpose of the experiments was to determine whether these visual stimuli would be effective in distorting the judgments of the heaviness of a single weight lying midway between the lighter and heavier weights.
