Open peer commentary on the article “Visual Representation in the Wild: Empirical Phenomenological Investigation of Visual-spatial Working Memory in a Naturalistic Setting” by Aleš Oblak. Abstract: I show that systematic first-person inquiry into the lived experience of decision-making in naturalistic settings in part affords a different understanding and conceptualization of the phenomenon from those arising in third-person laboratory research. Two aspects are discussed: the role of the task and how the participants understand the investigative situation. Furthermore, I briefly address a related matter: What shapes the choice of tasks in the first place? I argue both that the assemblage of the tasks we use to investigate the mind shapes the way we understand it and that how we conceptualize the mind in part determines our choice of tasks.
