My main project investigates accuracy in probability judgments, thus far focusing on accuracy according to a coherence criterion (judgments are compared to logical, mathematical, or statistical rules, such as the principle of additivity). We investigate determinants of additivity neglect (probability estimates for a set of outcomes that exceed 1 or 100%), such as numeracy and the effect of answering format. In addition, we are investigating the underlying cognitive process using process measures such as eye-tracking.
We are also investigating the role of emotions on various judgments and decisions, such as how schadenfreude affects decisions, and the role of emotions in risky choice framing.
Another current project investigates whether group judgments are more or less biased than individual judgments, focusing on a probabilistic bias that is common in everyday life, namely Base-rate fallacy type II (overweighting base-rates, ignoring case-information). This bias is well documented in studies of individuals, but has not been studied in groups. In addition, we investigate the effects of group composition (diversity in the individual members’ numeracy), use of “devil’s advocate”, and priming with analogous tasks.
Students interested in any of these topics are more than welcome to contact me.
