Direction-of-motion population stereotypes are preferences within a given population for generating a specific output on a display when a specific input is generated with a control. Previous research has identified the presence of population stereotypes in 2D and 3D control/display configurations. The current study examined whether population stereotypes exist for a 3D mental rotation task utilizing a rotational dial and a drawing of a 3D cube and whether control location, direction of cube rotation, isometric view angle, and cube rotational axis influenced preferences. Results indicate that The Clockwise for Clockwise (CC) stereotype does apply to the configuration tested in the current study. Increasing the isometric view angle offset increased the strength of the CC stereotype in some conditions. Results also indicate that the CC stereotype preference is both weak and reversed for conditions where the cube is rotated about the Y axis.
