Abstract [en]

Analogies can be used in most areas of human communication to highlight points of special interest. The creation of specialised patterns, examples, or analogies for facilitating communication is resource consuming. Therefore, we hypothesize that there are universal patterns that can be used and re-used more economically, than a large set of specialized patterns, for indexing and communicating knowledge. We have conducted empirical tests with 204 students, each of whom was given 20 minutes to solve problems from different scientific areas. The results of our investigation show clearly an improvement of the students’ problem solving skill in the tested areas when universal patterns were employed as cognitive aids. The average score of the test group that used universal patterns was 81 % higher than that of the control group.
