Figure 4 shows a parallel analysis centered on children’s first use of the shortcut. On the three trials immediately preceding its first use, roughly 80% of children in the blocked problems condition used the unconscious shortcut (as opposed to less than 10% use of this strategy for the study as a whole). After children began to report using the shortcut, they continued to use it quite consistently within that session.
