Discrimination study of packet soup

The soup data frame has 1847 rows and 13 variables. 185 respondents participated in an A-not A discrimination test with sureness. Before experimentation the respondents were familiarized with the reference product and during experimentation, the respondents were asked to rate samples on an ordered scale with six categories given by combinations of (reference, not reference) and (sure, not sure, guess) from 'referene, sure' = 1 to 'not reference, sure' = 6.
