Emotional-Cognitive Overconfidence and Gender

Gustavo Maia, Daniel Bonfim, Sergio Da Silva
We study the role gender plays in emotional and cognitive overconfidence in a consumer-choice environment. Regardless of age, we find in our sample that males show more emotional and cognitive overconfidence than females do. However, older females are more overconfident in both emotional and cognitive terms. This result can be rationalized by the fact that older females have an edge on their immune system.

Willful Blindness and Dishonesty

Sergio Da Silva, Raul Matsushita, Thayana Goncalves
Willful blindness refers to situations where people choose not to look or not to question. We investigate the relationship between willful blindness and honesty using a sample of random participants to respond to two questionnaires. We contrast the responses reported with the intrinsic dis-honesty of the group (the extent to which people lie when they are assured they cannot be caught). To measure intrinsic honesty, we conduct a d

Role of Regression to the Mean and Loss Aversion in Brazilian Soccer Club Performance

Leon Esquierro, Sergio Da Silva
Causal explanations are often favored to explain club performance in soccer tournaments, and the role that luck plays is usually neglected. Here, we consider three recent seasons of the first-division Brazilian soccer league to examine the relative importance to club success of loss aversion (a causal explanation) and regression to the mean (luck). We find that club performance depends on both, and quantify this finding.

The Influence of Psychotropic Drugs on Investor Overconfidence

Marcia Zindel, Gabriel Ribeiro, Carlos H. Rocha, Sergio Da Silva
We study the effects of the self-reported intake of stimulants, depressants and hallucinogens on investor overconfidence. A total of 105 investors participated. We find that the frequency of drug use did not affect overcon-fidence. However, overconfidence was correlated with the use of psycho-tropic drugs in our sample; regardless of type, we find a positive correlation of 15 percent. Correlation of investor overconfidence with st

Incomplete Information Choice on Incumbents, Cognitive Ability and Personality

Sergio Da Silva, Raul Matsushita, Mauricio Ramos
In choices under incomplete information on incumbents, consumers with stronger preferences are more likely to reinforce their prior choices with motivated reasoning. However, in situations where incomplete information is restricted only to the prior choice, consumers with stronger preferences are more likely to abandon, not reinforce, their prior choices due to cognitive dissonance. Here, we consider how cognitive ability and pers

Regressive Prediction Is the Best Way to Forecast Sports Outcomes: Evidence from Brazilian Soccer

Murilo Silva, Sergio Da Silva
We illustrate through a case study that regressive prediction is the best method to forecast sports outcomes. By taking predictions of promotion to first division soccer from a mathematician from one of the most famous sports websites in Brazil, we show that making Bayesian updates is misleading when we expect regression to the mean. The expert failed to realize that the more extreme the results are, the more regression is expecte
