Motivated reasoning can bias information gathering, risk perception and risk taking

In a series of studies we look at the value of information gathering. In study 1 we look at information gathering during physical activity (treadmill). In study 2 we look at slope inclination during different stages of the trip (clinopole). In study 3 we look at how words and goals affect understanding of avalanche forecasts (survey).
