Abstract:

Decisions, whose appropriateness depends on knowledge and rules, are expected more or less effectively depending on the psychomotor skills of the operator. If these are sequential rather than parallel processes, and it seems to me that they must be even though they may be carried out very quickly, then in some cases we may be able to infer decision from action, and gestalt from decision, as long as we understand that the cognitive centroid of the individual operator is idiosyncratic and unknowable to some degree. Training can help to improve perception it can also help to standardize the decisions taken in a given situation. The comprehension and integration of sensed data can also be improved by training, practice and criticism. The changes brought about by carefully targeted training can be observed and can also help us to underlying processes.
