Examining the Structural Relationship Between Socioemotional Comparisons and General Risk Preference

Past research suggests that feelings of relative disadvantage (i.e., envy, relative deprivation) have a causal role in eliciting domain-general risk-taking behaviours. This study used structural equation modelling in a crowdsourced sample (n=804) and found that feelings of relative disadvantage account for significant variance with a general factor of “risk preference.”
