Table 1 Cost Path for Scenarios 1 and 2 in the N-Person Model

From: Investment in online self-evaluation tests: A theoretical approach

  Scenario 1 Scenario 2
t = 0 Potentially Traumatic Experience
n individuals take the online self-evaluation test.
Costs: n·IDC 0(A 1)
Potentially Traumatic Experience
No one takes the test.
Costs = 0
t = 1 Proportion π need therapy.
Costs: n·π·STC 1(A 1)
(1-π) are not ill and do not need therapy.
Proportion π need therapy.
Costs: n·π·LTC 1(A 2)
(1-π) are not ill and do not need therapy.
