the Effect of Numeric Roundness on Probability Perceptions and Choice
Past research has predominantly shown that consumers prefer round numbers. This work documents an exception to such effect, by showing that people prefer and perceive non-round numbers as more likely to occur in cases where a numeric expression is evaluated and chosen based on its probabilities of occurrence or of being drawn in a lottery, gamble or other random selection process.
