Establish A Reference Point
Example for a reference point estimation We are looking for the distance and driving period between the locations L1 and L2. In a first step, for each location the nearby reference point is searched . As the geometric distance is calculated on the fly, the geometric distance between L1 and L2 and between R1 and R2 is known. Moreover, the routing-based distance and driving period between R1 and R2 is known from the distance matrix. It is believed that the topology between L1 and L2 is comparable to the topology between R1 and R2, that means comparable or even the same roads would be used in the routing.
A unique ID for the distance matrix must also be assigned for the reference point method. One college, for example, states that a market reference point represents the salary level of someone who has complete mastery of the subject matter. Each position then has a salary range based on its market reference point.
The probability manipulation occurred after the measurement of the initial reference point and before the measurement of the final reference point. Thus, it was possible to test for an effect of the probability format on the final reference point and on choice. Logistic regressions were computed in which the probability format was a dummy coded treatment variable, and either the final reference point or choice was the dependent variable, and no interpretable results were obtained. This, in turn, raised questions regarding the probability manipulation, which we investigate next.
In this paper, we examine the applicability of prospect theory (Kahneman and Tversky 1979; 1982; 1984; Tversky and Kahneman 1981), a theory of individual choice under conditions of uncertainty, to consumer choice situations. While we utilize only one form of consumer choice in this study–choosing between two retail sites–we propose that the framework for this investigation is readily adaptable to a variety of decision situations. The paper concludes with a summary of what we have learned and the resultant implications for future research. We began this paper by asking if consumers’ reference points affected their choices, and the results suggest that they do.
Around 70% of the participants reported that their frame choices were based on linguistic nature reasons. In Experiment 1, in which the reference point was presented by the cover story, the participants may have focused more on the linguistic nature for the two frames. As Experiment 1 was a preliminary study for the subsequent experiments, as we mentioned, we used these results as benchmark for comparison with results in Experiments 2, 3A, and 3B.
In sum, the findings in Experiment 3A were highly analogous to those in Experiment 2. These results indicate that frame choices are affected by the reference point presented in the priming task. Participants made a frame choice and provided the reason for their choice. In the frame choice, we presented the following cover story, as provided by McKenzie and Nelson . Note that the ReferenceDataSearch services, which encode and decode individual items, are not applicable for hotel reference points.
