I know I probably would have never watched any of those 1,800 movies but I am still upset about this and I am seriously considering leaving Netflix. Why do I feel this way? — KRISTEN As a movie fan myself, I appreciate your conundrum. The basic principle behind this emotional reaction to the elimination of these movies is loss aversion. Loss aversion is one of the most basic and well-understood principles in social science. The basic finding is that losing something has a stronger emotional impact than gaining something of the same value.
