Testing Rationality on Primitive Knowledge

Olivier Gossner and Elias Tsakas ()

No 275, Working Papers in Economics from University of Gothenburg, Department of Economics

Abstract: We study whether rational information processing is testable. Our main result shows that, under positive conditions, negative introspection holds if and only if it holds for primitive propositions. In particular, it is sufficient to test negative introspection on primitive propositions.
