Current models of metacognitive or executive action regulation are based upon the assumption of the psychological reality of some central processing unit controlling cognitive ‘routines’. The current approach questions the homogeneity and consistency of this notion by showing that there are at least two concepts of executive regulation, a competence and a performance centered paradigm, which largely differ with regard to the predictions they allow. The theoretical inconsistencies are further emphasized in light of empirical data.
