Cognitive Daily: Is 17 the "most random" number? (6727 words)
Yes, "17" was chosen significantly more frequently than the 5 percent of the time we would expect, but even in a truly random sampling of a finite number of numbers, we would expect that some numbers would come up more than 5 percent of the time, and some would come up less.

17 is smack in the middle of the second part of the second sub-list while 7 (another high scoring response) is in the same position in the second part of the first sub-list.
