Abstract

In this paper, we critically review various explanations for the magnitude effect in tipping and offer a simpler explanation for this effect. We also present a simulation that demonstrates the plausibility of our explanation. The practical implications of both the magnitude effect in tipping and our explanation for it are discussed.
