Value Atrophy in Consumer Assessment of Risky Options

We show that perceived value (negative or positive) of a risky option decreases upon addition of further risky prospects of the same valence. As a result, consumers can perceive normatively more dangerous (beneficial) options to be less dangerous (beneficial), and normatively less dangerous (beneficial) options to be more dangerous (beneficial).
