Streeb, Dirk: L. J. Trevena et al. [2013]: Presenting Quantitative Information about Decision Outcomes: A Risk Communication Primer for Patient Decision Aid Developers doi:10.1186/1472-6947-13-S2-S7 - 19.03.18 07:22 (+) Positive One or more sentences pp. 8–9 They found that, when statistical information was reinforced with pictographs and quizzes, anecdotes had no significant effect on treatment decisions. The same authors also found pictographs were the active ingredient that lessened the effect of anecdotes. This finding would argue for avoiding narratives without statistical information.

Kirsh [2010]: Thinking with External Representations doi:10.1007/s00146-010-0272-8 - 12.03.18 12:35 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 451 Without interacting with multiple representations certain discoveries would simply be out of reach. Visual designers who move between pen and paper, 3D mockups and rapid prototypes are familiar with the same type of process.
