Additionally, Sternberg's models assume that the complexity of the relational inference, mapping, and application events vary among analogies. Thus, indices of complexity, based on counts of stimulus changes, or ratings of relational distance are also included in "the models. These indices are needed to obtain a parameter estimate for the duration of one repetition of a component, as well as to differentiate self-terminating and exhaustive processes.

The bike is in the garage. PW SP < inclusion> The relations in both premises involve the element of < inclusion> and so a valid conclusion must include this element and nothing more. The wheel is in the garage. SP < inclusion> The element of < connection> occurs in only one of the premises and so a conclusion that includes this element is not valid (marked with an asterisk). *The wheel is part of the garage.

On the basis of the taxonomy, Ross et al. created three types of items that differed in the similarity of the key and alternative relations to the stem. In homogeneous items, the key was exactly the same relation as the stem and the alternatives came from the same family.
