|dc.description.abstract||Changing conditions often require authority figures to develop options for reallocating resources. Based on Prospect Theory, this study predicted that individuals exposed to gain frames or in authority roles would prefer risk-averse options and construct messages expressing desire to avoid risks, whereas those exposed to loss frames or in less powerful roles would prefer risk-taking options and express a desire to take risks. In this experiment, gain frames and being authority figures increased preferences for budget-cutting options with risk-averse options, whereas loss frames and limited authority increased preferences for risk-taking options and the likelihood that individuals advocated creative solutions.||en|
