Resumen

En este trabajo presentamos algunos adelantos metodológicos en el estudio de la dinámica del pensamiento usando herramientas geométricas. Se estudian algunas características dinámicas del proceder inferente en un grupo de sujetos durante dos períodos. Los descriptores geométricos usados (dimensión fractal y longitud acumulada) confirman los hallazgos de estudios anteriores en relación con la existencia de ptarones inferenciales individuales. No obstanste lo anterior existen diferencias en los patrones inferenciales en los mismos sujetos estudiados en los dos periodos.

Abstract

This present study is a descriptive approximation to synthetic inferential processes of thought from a dynamic standpoint. A concrete experimental paradigm was build, to present and study the dynamics of inferential thought processes that are involved in solving a problem (the strategy game known as "Battleship"). The geometric tools used to describe the inferential dynamics of the participants was the fractal dimension and cumulative lenght. The task problem was presented  to the same children at two ages. The results obtained allowed: a) to describe the inferential dynamics of participants while dealing with the problem posed, and b) to characterise through a model the dynamic patterns of the inferential procedure of each individual of the sample. Our results suggest that each child has his own functional dynamic unit of synthetical inferential thought processes. Moreover, differences between the dynamic patterns of inferential procedure were found in each child at two different ages.
