Influence of the conflict of implicit and explicit knowledge of a subject on the results of learning process in classification task

Abstract

The article is devoted to the research of interaction between implicit and explicit knowledge formed during the learning process. At the first stage of experiment, the stimuli for classification were presented to the subjects in the way that together with the relevant parameters, the irrelevant one has always been changed; this situation provoked implicit learning of the given regularity. At the second stage, the irrelevant regularity, which was implicitly learnt, contradicted with subjects’ explicit knowledge. This critical situation helped to estimate, which of the mentioned type of knowledge takes the priority. The obtained results confirm the idea, according to which the person can unconsciously acquire quite complex patterns of changes in physical objects and in the environment, as well as an evidence of the existence of a special cognitive mechanism, that regulates the interaction between implicit and explicit knowledge and manifests itself in changing of decision-making criteria in the situation of the conflict between implicit and explicit knowledge.
