Information Weighting, Familiarization, and the Risky Shift
Knowles, Eric S.
Social Behavior and Personality, 4, 1, 113-118, 76
Whether individual study of risk problems (familiarization) leads to greater risk taking was investigated. Subjects (N=160) in groups of five or alone developed arguments in favor of the successful risky outcome in six Choice Dilemma problems. Groups may be more efficient than individuals in developing arguments favoring culturally valued positions. (Author/SBP)
