内容简介

Traditionally, because of limited data, researchers assume people update their beliefs “as if” a Bayesian decision-maker or some other heuristics such as the average of observed signals. In this project, we design a laboratory experiment to elicit subjects’ posterior belief about the true underlying value of an unknown variable. We focus on dynamic of belief structures and sequentially elicit beliefs after providing subjects with any new information about the unknown value. In addition to eliciting posterior mean, unlike in the received literature, we elicit subjects’ perceived variance of the posterior distribution. By tracking the dynamic formation of subjects’ posterior distributions, we classicfy subjects into Bayesian and non-Bayesian. Moreover we characterize the “boundedly rational” behavior that explain a non-Bayesian subject’s belief updating pattern.
