Probability Weighting

Lecture no. 6 from the course: Behavioral Economics: When Psychology and Economics Collide

Probability Weighting

Taught by Professor Scott Huettel | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Economics & Finance Courses

“Probability weighting” describes how people tend to convert objective information about probability into a subjective sense of what may happen—which can lead to bias and error. Observe how this applies to real-life situations such as buying life or travel insurance, and learn two tools to change how you deal with probabilities.
