Testing trade-off theory and pecking order theory under managerial overconfidence

task (overplacement), attribute success to own abilities and failure to that of others’ (self-serving bias), they overestimate their ability to control events (the illusion of control), overestimate probability of positive results and underestimate the failure, and underestimate completion times and overestimating the quality of their performances (the planning fallacy), and are too optimistic about the future (wishful thinking). In the previous research, there are many ways of identifying managerial overconfidence. The widely used proxies for managerial
