Another goal of the experiments described in this Part was to examine an issue that was raised, but not resolved, in previous studies--namely whether the reluctance to impose liability based on circumstantial evidence can be explained by the subjects' degree of confidence in their subjective probability assessments.
But it fails to make children aware that an analysis based on symmetry may also be a very efficient way of allocating a subjective probability.
But it does mean that the law would send a message to judges about how confident they must be in the rightness of their decisions based on all the practical considerations that enter into subjective probability assessments.
Still, the uncertainty could concern unique events, because one can speak of the subjective probability of x and y turning out to be either true=1 or false=0.
This was done mostly in Study 1, which established an overall relative ratio model for the integration of subjective expected gains and losses, encompassing in addition a multiplicative operation between subjective value and subjective probability.
When the subjective probability of a win increases by 1 percentage point and that of a loss decreases by the same amount, postgame mean return decreases by 2.
horserace bookmaker betting market, the following topics will be addressed: (i) the manner in which subjective probability judgments are revealed in betting markets, (ii) the similarities between decisions made in betting markets and those made in other environments, (iii) how the availability of an unequivocal outcome to a horserace facilitates the analysis of the manner in which information is used by bettors, and (iv) the nature of the particular dynamic information set that is used in this study.
