Moderation By Extremes: Biases in Reward Perceptions Drive Compromise Effects in Financial Bundles

We find that compromise effects are stronger when middle options bundle extreme items (e.g., half high-risk/high-reward and half low-risk/low reward stocks) rather than being composed entirely of moderate items (e.g., individual stocks moderate in both risk and reward), because the bundle-of-extremes is viewed as more potentially rewarding, but not riskier.
