Thanks for writing. It really helps to have concrete examples of how this would affect decision making in real life.

Brief summary: I give a look at what it feels like to try and use different decision-making procedures. I'm not an expert on decision theory, and I am happy to make factual corrections.

Main point is that our thinking for decision making can often be constrained by the narrow frames we use, so thinking about different lenses can help point at other potentially relevant things to consider throughout the decision making procedures.
