  • This table presents various fixed effects logistic regression specifications. The session x/decision y parameters are dummy variables that indicate the first three decisions in each of the three sessions. Note that in specifications 3 and 4 there is no value for the very first decision of the day because the regression includes a term for proportion of favorable decisions, which requires there to have been at least one other decision that day. Ethnicity and sex are dummy variables. SEs appear in parentheses. *P < 0.10, **P < 0.05, ***P < 0.01.
