Subjective Probability

Based on your experience thus far in this class, what is the probability that you will receive an "A" grade? Explain the factors you have used in arriving at this probability assessment.

Do you believe that all students in your class will arrive at the same probability assessment that you have? Why or why not?

I do not believe all students will arrive at the same probability assessment that I have, I believe this because the probability for myself was low and I believe in my class mates and I believe they can and there’s a high probability they will receive an “A” grade. Explain what is meant by subjective probability. Research the Internet, and provide a business-related example in which subjective probability assessment would likely be used (be sure to cite your sources).

Subjective probability is a personal judgment on whether a certain outcome of a situation will happen or not, this probability is not supported by any type of data or calculations only the personals past experiences and their opinions. In a business scenario a manager may have faith in employees selling skills and assign them to go make a sale with a certain customer, based on past experiences the manager’s opinions on the worker makes him believe in his employees skills.
