Abstract: Pseudodiagnosticity refers to the tendency to select impoverished in-
formation in preference to equally available diagnostic data. Mynatt, Do-
herty, and Dragan (1993) reported that pseudodiagnostic reasoning was at-
tenuated in problems in which the information selection had consequences
for the reasoner’s future actions in contrast to problems in which it did not.
Girotto, V., Evans, J.St.B.T., & Legrenzi, P. (1996) denied that such ‘action’
problems fostered better information selection because they argued that in
Mynatt’s et al.’s study action and non-action or inference varied in how the
decision task was framed. We re-examined the way people reasoned about
action problems and inference problems taking into consideration Girotto
et al.’s criticisms. We found that even when the presentation and salience of
the information was equated in both kinds problems, diagnostic informa-
tion selection was more likely for action that for inference problems.
