Twenty-year-old Ethan is shown an array of photographs of people's faces and is asked to judge which people would be likely to own a smartphone. He separates the photos into a "young face" pile and an "old face" pile, then concludes that the young face group would be more likely. What process has Ethan used to make his decision?

▸ Social categorization; Ethan's grouping decisions influenced his later judgments.

▸ Situational attribution; Ethan correctly applied contextual information to the judgment task.

▸ Fundamental attribution error; Ethan assumed most young people would be like he is.

▸ Compilation categorization; Ethan established social groups based on prior information.
