I'm trying to estimate the effect of personality on exploration behavior in multi armed bandit problems. My current approach is to identify the choice strategy that most accurately fits the behavior shown by the participants and then relate the relevant exploration parameter to the personality metric I'm using. However, I can't come up with a solution to how the first part (selecting the most fitting choice strategy) could actually be achieved in practice and Google just brings up ML related information where the agent is an algorithm and not a human being. Is there a way in which something like this is typically done?
Figured it out. It works exactly they way I originally intended to do it in my question. See this tutorial for detailed information on how to actually implement the procedure with real data.
