Toddler Plays Probability Game

Caption: This is a screenshot from a video of the experiment in which a 2-year-old watched a researcher play a game in which there were two winning strategies, but one worked more consistently than the other. When given her own turn to play (as seen in screenshot), the toddler picked the better strategy.
