All are welcome to attend an upcoming talk as part of the Decisions, Attitude, Risk and Thinking Research Group seminar series. Dr Anna Paolillo will be presenting a recent paper on the development of a new scale to measure a new construct, specifically, subjective risk intelligence.
"In our modern society, risk and uncertainty have been identified as prominent characteristics. This implies that individuals need to develop new psychological resources to face unpredictable changes and to consider risk and uncertainty as opportunities.
In this context, the construct of Subjective Risk Intelligence is defined as the ability to effectively assess pros and cons of a decision, in situations where the outcomes are uncertain. Risk intelligent individuals can be described as being able to effectively evaluating risky situations, considering opportunities and threats, developing a positive attitude in uncertain situations and facing the unpredictability with creativity and emotional control. Considering the scarce literature on this construct, the present study aimed to develop and test the psychometric properties of a Subjective Risk Intelligence Scale (SRIS). Specifically, we: (1) verified the five factorial model of SRIS; (2) explored its measurement equivalence across gender, and (3) assessed the concurrent and discriminant validities of the scale.
The findings have important implications for both educational and therapeutic interventions."
