Thanks for this! Prospect Theory has long posited a "certainty effect" where we seek out certainty (even when it is not rational to do so), but this is the first set of experiments I've seen that validates that not only do we *seek* certainty we largely *are* certain about future events (or, we have psychological certainty as opposed to epistemological certainty I suppose).

Very interesting stuff.
