Abstract: Questions arise about how cognition divers based on personal domains of expertise. We have designed a web-based analogy game to promote categorising words in order to facilitate the development of new concepts. Twenty junior high school students, whose membership on a baseball team represented their domain of expertise, played the game involving words related with baseball terminology. We found that conceptual processing through reflection-in-action differed according to whether or not the object of such processing fell within the domain of expertise of the respondent, observing cognitive upheaval in the conceptual processing.
