Attention Alters Appearances and Solves the ’Many-Many Problem’: Implications for the Research in Skill Acquisition

Attention Alters Appearances and Solves the ‘Many-Many Problem’: Implications for the Research in Skill Acquisition (with R. Sánchez)

In this article we argue that research in skill acquisition has underestimate the relevance of some features of attention. We present and theoretically discuss two essential features of attention that have been systematically ignored in the research of skill acquisition, both at a sub-personal and a personal level: attention alters in an essential way the perceived stimuli; and attention is crucial for solving ’the many-many problem’. We also propose new lines of research and implications for training within skill acquisition that take these ideas into consideration.
