English term or phrase: reluctant to feel certain
When faced with an outcome which has a large probability associated with it, ***people are reluctant to feel certain about that outcome occurring and tend to overemphasize this by underweighting the large probabilities***. The consequence of this is that it can affect a person's attitude towards risk.

Kann man diesen schrecklichen Satz nicht einfach so verkürzen:

Wenn sie sich mit einem Ergebnis konfrontiert sehen, das mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit eintreten wird, neigen viele Menschen dazu, dessen Eintrittswahrscheinlichkeit zu unterschätzen, was sich wiederum auf ihre Risikoneigung auswirkt.

Was meint ihr?
