Affective Decision Making: A Behavioral Theory of Choice
Aﬀective decision-making (ADM) is a refutable and predictive theory of individual choice under risk and uncertainty. It generalizes expected utility theory by positing the existence of two cognitive processes — the “rational” and the “emotional” process. Observed choice is the result of their simultaneous interaction. We present a model of aﬀective choice in insurance markets, where risk perceptions are endogenous.
