Seeing Mountains in Mole Hills: Geographical-Slant Perception

Abstract: When observers face directly toward the incline of a hill, their awareness of the slant of the hill is greatly overestimated, but motoric estimates are much more accurate. The present study examined whether similar results would be found when observers were allowed to view the side of a hill. Observers viewed the cross-sections of hills in real (Experiment 1) and virtual (Experiment 2) environments and estimated the inclines with verbal estimates, by adjusting the cross-section of a disk, and by adjusting a bo… Show more

“…Spatial orientation . PitchFor the last two decades, a wealth of evidence shows that people overestimate the slant of both geographical and manmade slopes by between 5°and 25° (Bhalla & Proffitt, 1999;Bridgeman & Hoover, 2008;Creem & Proffitt, 1998; CreemRegehr, Gooch, Sahm, & Thompson, 2004;Durgin & Li, 2011;Durgin, Li, & Hajnal, 2010;Hajnal, Abdul-Malak, & Durgin, 2011;Proffitt, Bhalla, Gossweiler, & Midgett, 1995;Proffitt, Creem & Zosh, 2001;Shaffer & Flint, 2011;Shaffer & McManama, 2015;Stefanucci, Proffitt, Clore, & Parekh, 2008;Witt & Proffitt, 2007). Much less work has been performed on people's perception of their own body orientation in the pitch dimension, and the results of some of this work are difficult to interpret.…”

“…Models such as those of Perrone (1982) or Proffitt (Proffitt et al, 2001;Stefanucci et al, 2005) help explain the occurrence of slant overestimation as a visual illusion; yet other work supports the view that additional, nonvisual factors can also contribute to the perceived slant distortion, particularly when judgments involve multisensory information such as occurs with body tilt (Aksamit & Husak, 1983;Higashiyama & Koga, 1998;Ito & Gresty, 1997).…”

“…Past research has documented a robust slant illusion in the visual domain (Perrone, 1982;Proffitt et al, 1995;Proffitt et al, 2001). The present study confirms a related body tilt illusion in the proprioceptive domain.…”
