Generalization gradients in an identification type task reflect the willingness to apply identifying labels to stimuli which deviate from what might be called the ideal standard of a class. After training subjects to discriminate between pairs of ideal standards varied in both discriminability and frequency of occurrence, it is shown that post-discrimination generalization gradients are characterized by a redistribution of identifying responses around the more frequent standard as a function of discriminability.
