About Jean E Pretz

My research is focused on understanding the nature of intuition. Specifically, I'm trying to find out how the validity of intuition is affected by factors such as expertise and problem complexity. I teach undergraduate courses in cognitive psychology, research methods, and the psychology of creativity and intuition. I received my BA from Wittenberg University, Springfield, Ohio and my MS, MPhil, and PhD degrees from Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut. For more information on my research and teaching, see my website:
