Abstract : Computer-based experiments were made to observe and record the verbal behavior of subjects making decisions in quantitative task environments under uncertainty and risk. The second phase of the projects consists of generating a psychological theory of the above behavior, in the form of a computer program. Comparing the trace of the program with tape recorded protocols may indicate the level of completeness of the theory. (Author)
