There are classifications galore. Below is a comparison of one by DeShon, Chan, and Weissbein (1995) with one by Styles (2008):
|DeShon et al|
Pretty good agreement between DeShon and co’s “visuospatial” and Styles’ “equation” (both what does and doesn’t fall into these buckets). The “equation” items concern those with “overlapping elements” – seems pretty visuospatial. Also neither classification codes item 15: DeShon and co say it violates the task instructions. The rest is a bit of a mess, but then Styles peeked at a higher resolution into the analytic items.
