Priority Heurisitc Predicts:
A preferred to C; C preferred to E,
and E preferred to A.
S# 6176 C = 9.8 Rep = 20; started with this pattern, then switched to perfectly consistent with the opposite pattern for 4 replicates at the end of the first day; back to this pattern for 10 reps on day 2.
S# 7663 C = 6.3 Rep = 10; an intransitive pattern consistent with priority heuristic, DP = 0.05. Few reps and low self-consistency in this case.
