This seems relevant to the discussion:

Emotional biases are based on feelings rather than facts. They can overpower rationality, particularly in times of stress. Loss aversion is one type of emotional bias.

Self-control bias: the tendency to consume today at the expense of tomorrow, which can encourage a short-term rather than long-term investment strategy.
Illusion of control bias: belief that people have some power or ability to control and/or influence investment outcomes, even when it is highly improbable.
Overconfidence bias: an unjustifiable belief that someone’s own thoughts and abilities are paramount and always right. This can be a detrimental bias that leads investors to ignore the facts, minimize important details and conduct less research.

Seems the loss aversion one not too heavy out there right now!
