Humans tend to over-perceive clumps in statistically random data sets. Evolutionary psychologists have hypothesized that this is adaptation resulting from humans' history of hunting and gathering for aggregated resources. We present a poster that investigates this hypothesis by examining humans' search patterns when looking for resources in different statistical patterns as well as what changes in search tactics occur when participants respond to the presence and absence of resources.
