Abstract

Emotions have been a central area of focus for researchers seeking a descriptive account of individual decision making, with a particular point of interest the relationship with probability (Loewenstein, Weber, Hsee & Welch, 2001). It has been contended that in emotive situations individuals are prone to ignore or neglect probability, and focus instead on the affect-rich outcome (Sunstein, 2002).
