Taking a different approach, Keren and Roelofsma (1995; Experiment 1) found that participants' preference for the larger, later outcome increased as the probability for obtaining either outcome decreased when the delays to receiving the outcomes were 0 versus 4 weeks.
Determining the interaction between delay and probability discounting is not only theoretically interesting, it also has practical value.

Charles Cohen, Chief Executive Officer of Probability, commented:
Mulligan and Hunter (2003) use such a model for estimating the average probability of a decisive vote in legislative elections, and Gelman, Katz, and Bafumi (2004) use the distribution of aggregate vote margins to study the dependence of the probability of a tie on the number of voters.
While we might expect that mathematicians and scientists since De Morgan's time would be content to define probability subjectively or ignore the matter altogether, the actual history of probability since De Morgan's day is replete with mathematicians and scientists who sought to establish that probability is more than simply a measure of subjective belief.
This meant the chances of hitting a rectangle increased with its size-it was simply easier to strike a bigger target, and participants gradually learned the link between rectangle size and probability.
