Here I have multiple Stimuli and multiple blocks, when i run this script it is happening that in starting blocks randomization is low i.e. it shows large sequence of same category 
means block is less jumbled but in last few block randomization is high. 
is it the inquisite algorithm work that way? like less randomization in starting blocks  and high randomization in latter blocks  or can I achieve high randomization in starting  blocks also?
