Spillover Effects of Loss of Control on Risky Decision-Making

2016-03-01, Wimmer, Birgit, Zhang, Keshun, Götz, Thomas, Fischbacher, Urs

Decision making in risky situations is frequently required in our everyday lives and has been shown to be influenced by various factors, some of which are independent of the risk context. Based on previous findings and theories about the central role of perceptions of control and their impact on subsequent settings, spillover effects of subjective loss of control on risky decision-making are assumed. After developing an innovative experimental paradigm for inducing loss of control, its hypothesized effects on risky decision-making are investigated. Partially supporting the hypotheses, results demonstrated no increased levels of risk perceptions but decreased risk-taking behavior following experiences of loss of control. Thus, this study makes a methodological contribution by proposing a newly developed experimental paradigm facilitating further research on the effects of subjective loss of control, and additionally provides partial evidence for the spillover effects of loss of control experiences on risky decision-making.

Power of Difference - Wissenschaftliche Begleitung und Evaluation

2014, Wimmer, Birgit, Götz, Thomas

Die Bildungslandschaft ist geprägt von stetigen Veränderungs- und Optimierungsbemühungen. Wie Schülerinnen und Schüler in unseren Schulen bestmöglich gefördert werden können und welche – auch strukturellen – Veränderungen zur besseren Nutzung und Förderung der individuellen Potenziale unserer Kinder und damit zu optimalen Lernergebnissen beitragen können, ist ein Thema ständigen schulpolitischen, aber auch gesellschaftlichen Diskurses. Aktuelle prominente Beispiele sind hier etwa Überlegungen zum angemessenen Umgang mit Heterogenität unter den Schülern, struktur- und prozessbezogene Entwicklungen unter dem Stichwort „Inklusion“, die Einführung von Gemeinschaftsschulen sowie anhaltende Diskussionen über das acht- bzw. neunjährige Gymnasium. Daneben gibt es auch viele innovative Ideen, die in klein angelegten Modellprojekten auf ihre Umsetzbarkeit hin getestet werden, wie etwa das Projekt „Power of Difference“ am Gymnasium Wilhelmsdorf.

Spillover effects of loss of control on risk propensity

The effects of subjective loss of control on risk-taking behavior : the mediating role of anger

2015, Wimmer, Birgit, Zhang, Keshun, Götz, Thomas, Fang, Ping, Fischbacher, Urs

Based on the Appraisal Tendency Framework on the antecedents and consequences of emotions two experimental studies examined the relationship between externally caused loss of control experiences and risk-taking behavior, as well as the assumed mediation of this relationship by the emotion anger. An experimental paradigm for inducing externally caused and consequently externally attributed loss of control which should lead to experiences of anger was developed and pretested in a Pilot Study. The relationship between loss of control experiences, anger, and risk-taking behavior was investigated using two separate student samples from Germany (N = 84, 54% female) and China (N = 125; 64% female). In line with our hypotheses, results showed that anger mediated the link between subjective loss of control experiences and increasing risk-taking behavior. Multiple group comparisons revealing similar patterns in both samples affirmed the results’ cross-cultural generalizability. These results implicate that anger makes people less risk averse in the process of economic decision making.
