It seems inherently plausible that the greater the perceived risk for one’s own health is the greater the motivation for protective action. Accordingly, it is important to understand how people perceive health risks, how accurate these perceptions are, and how information about one’s own health risk is received. This article focuses on general and personal risk perceptions, discusses the role of intuition in personal risk perception, and presents findings regarding reactions to individualized feedback about risk.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2015-05-26T13:50:54Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
