Representation and Social Regret in Risk-Taking
Representing others brings responsibility and fear of letting others down (social regret). We incorporate these phenomena in a theoretical model and provide a psychological perspective to explain the individual-group discontinuity in risk-taking activities. A representative makes a state-wise comparison of the consequences of her decision and an unchosen advice given by a group member. Social regret-aversion renders extreme utility differences salient and allows both risky and cautious shifts.
