Abstract:

The world of today is flooded with information which we need to process and make decisions. Does it matter if we perceive this information as text or video? Using video fragments of real-life diagnostic interviews and text representations with the same content we compared the diagnostic classification accuracy of experienced and novice clinical psychologists. Confidence was also examined. We noted lack of difference in accuracy between cases presented as video or text, and also, lack of difference between experienced and novice groups. What seemed to alter accuracy was the case itself, not its presentation (as text or video). Confidence was found to be positively correlated with accuracy. We conclude that text vignettes are as good case descriptions as videos
