Distinguishing Two Forms of Consumer Uncertainty
We show that consumers reliably distinguish epistemic (knowledge-based) uncertainty from aleatory (stochastic) uncertainty in their rating of events. These ratings predict evaluations of credit/blame and luckiness/unluckiness for good/bad outcomes and mediate hindsight bias. Moreover, consumers tend to make higher budget estimates concerning epistemic uncertainty, especially when they feel more knowledgeable.
