Psychology of Reasoning?

This is a useful video which explains the way a conditional is employed in a deductive argument.  It actually reveals very little about the psychology of reasoning, unless the point is to show that most people do not understand the validity of certain forms of argumentation, namely modus ponens, modus tollens, etc.  Who would have questioned that?  Yet if you actually explain the rule, most people can employ it properly.
