Social uncertainty is heterogeneous and sometimes valuable

Abstract:
To win friends, help the needy, avoid exploitation or influence strangers, people must make decisions that are inherently uncertain. In their compelling and insightful perspective on resolving social uncertainty1, FeldmanHall and Shenhav (henceforth F&S;) join a growing movement combining computational approaches with social psychological theory2. F&S; identify a range of negative and positive aspects of social uncertainty. Here we offer additional ways to think about social uncertainty and suggest potential avenues for future research.
