Axiomatic measures of perceived risk: Some tests and extensions
The history of axiomatic measurement of perceived risk of unidimensional risky choice alternatives is briefly reviewed. Experiments 1 and 2 present data that distinguish between two general classes
Empirical Investigation of Some Properties of the Perceived Riskiness of Gambles
Empirical tests of some properties of the perceived riskiness of gambles are reported. In experiments conducted with U.S. and German subjects, we observed a remarkable consistency in risk judgments.
