Abstract:

Previous research has indicated that the riskiness of decision makers increases with elapsed time spent on a task. This research raises the question whether the decision makers are aware of their increasing riskiness and their increasing risk taking on various dimensions of their task. Subjects participated in the Tactical and Negotiations Game, an experimental simulation of a small scale internation conflict. It appears that subjects differentiated between only two risk dimensions. Modified author abstract
