People do not always behave as normative theories such as SEU theory claim they should. Research findings in cognitive psychology cast serious doubts on the descriptive validity of SEU theory. When there are many con­ sequences and/or probabilities or unusual relationships between these elements, people tend to violate decision rules such as those proposed by SEU theory. Moreover, people find it difficult to learn and use the so-called weighted sum decision rule of SEU theory. An added difficulty is that people find it difficult to think probabilistically.
