Abstract: Three experiments tested the hypothesis that repeated prior strategy use affects subsequent strategy choice. Adults were presented sequences of items that either strongly elicited an addition-based or a subtraction-based strategy for judging numerosities in a rectangular grid. Each sequence was followed by a “neutral” item that equally elicited both strategies. Experiment 1 and 2 revealed that strategy choices on a neutral item were affected by the repeated use of the strategy on the previous items, but only for a small range of neutral items. Experiment 3 showed that this effect was – unexpectedly – not strengthened by the length of the sequence.
