Computer task: the card game
You undertake a card game during the test days. During the card game, you turn cards over to win or lose points. You decide how many cards you want to turn over without knowing which are winning or losing cards. In this way, we measure how much risk you're willing to take. You can decide when to stop unless you turn a losing card over, then the round stops automatically. You're playing for money so the prize is real! The game therefore requires your full attention. Any money won will be transferred to your account as part of your overall payment at the end of the research period. Luckily, you don't have to pay us any money if you lose. The points won, and therefore the money that you earn, differ widely per person. This is dependent on chance and luck.
