Abstract and Keywords

This chapter discusses two classes of views of automaticity: mechanism-based views and feature-based views. For each view it is considered what the implications are for the diagnosis of a process or behavior as automatic. The class of feature-based views is discussed in further detail. First, definitions of features are listed. Then, it is proposed that features provide information about operating conditions. This broadens the scope toward examining operating conditions that are not included in the automaticity concept. Finally, various feature-based views are examined that differ with regard to the amount of coherence that they assume among features.

Keywords: automatic, uncontrolled, unintentional, goal independent, unconscious, efficient, fast, purely stimulus driven
