This research was supported by a Japan Society for the Promotion of Science Fellowship to Keiko Ishii.
Nobody reported that she or he had color-blindness in either Study 1 or Study 2.
A Japanese-English bilingual coder coded all the responses, and a Japanese coder and an American coder coded the Japanese and American responses respectively. Responses were considered correct if they referred to the identity of the object at issue or its semantic equivalents. Highly general answers (e.g., “map” for “globe”) were coded as incorrect. Agreement was quite high for both American and Japanese data (Cohen's ds = 0.96 and 0.92, respectively).
The origins were as follows: Chinese (14), Indian (6), Korean (3), Vietnamese (1), and Philippine (1). The other 6 people were unknown.
Two coders coded responses to each trial in the same way as in Study 1. Agreement was quite high (Cohen's d = 0.96).
