"Illogical" Card

Between all the distractions and parties at university, I did manage to fit in a few experimental psychology lectures. One of the most interesting things I learned was how at heart, people aren't as logical as they think. Try this problem:

Each of these cards has a letter (A or K) on one side and a number (2 or 7) on the reverse. If I told you there was a rule that a card with A on one side will have a 2 on the reverse, which two cards would you turn over to find out if the rule was true?

The answer to which is A and 7.
