Individual probability of success across time in the Low Difficulty condition. The probability of success increased much faster in social learners (blue triangles, n = 40) than in individual learners (red diamonds, n = 40). Yet, the performance of social learners drastically dropped once they got isolated from their other group members (vertical dashed line). The probability of success at trial 40 and the probability of reporting the correct rule was slightly higher in social learners than in individual learners but did not differ statistically (see main text). Horizontal dashes show mean posterior probabilities and 95% HPDIs.
