Studies on the category adjustment often use sequential stimulus estimation tasks are in which people see a target stimulus then must reproduce its size using an adjustable response stimulus. Two empirical questions remain regarding methodological considerations in such tasks. In this study, the starting length and velocity of response stimulus as well as the time interval between target presentation and response are investigated. We found that velocity and response delay affect estimates but starting size does not.
