Results of Experiment 2. The numbers of pumps on balloons that did not burst are presented separately for each condition (baseline, lucky, unlucky) in each time bin of the initial (a) and subsequent (b) phases of the task. These phases were separated by a short pause lasting for a few seconds. Each time bin consists of five consecutive balloons. Figure part (c) shows the numbers of pumps on balloons that did not burst across all conditions and balloons. Shaded areas represent 95% confidence intervals for means, depicted with continuous lines. Points denote individual data points in all figure parts. Figures were created using the ggplot2 package68.
