On the nature of uncertainty in choice. The dominant metaphor used to conceptualise risky decision making involves choices between explicit gambles. Moreover, in both experimental and theoretical work, this notion is made operational by using explicit gambling devices such as dice, urns, bingo cages, and the like. However, the nature of uncertainty people experience in real world decisions is often quite different from that inherent in gambling devices. For instance, people are highly sensitive to contextual variables, and changes in context can strongly affect the evaluation of risk.
