Abstract: Recall memory and sequential dependence threaten the independence of successive beauty ratings. Such independence is usually assumed when using repeated measures to estimate the intrinsic variance of a rating. In several experiments, we measure how much of the variability across beauty ratings can be attributed to recall memory and sequential dependence. We explore stimulus similarity and stimulus set size as mediators. Overall, we assess the validity of repeated measures to estimate intrinsic variance and their importance in understanding individual differences in aesthetic judgment.
