Two situations are possible: SOME PROCEDURES FOR QUANTIFYING RISK 21 (i) positive dependence: where it is considered that if one variable has a high value, the other variable will probably have a high value (and where if one variable has a low value then so will the other variable); (ii) negative dependence: where it is considered that if one variable has a high value the other will probably have a low value. Dependencies cause difficulties in a sensitivity analysis because when they are present it is not strictly correct to consider errors in only one variable at a time.

This is particularly likely to be the case when the performance measure is IRR or when variables which describe growth rates, the life of the project or the timing of cash flows are involved. Robichek (1975) provides an interesting example to illustrate exactly what does happen when the performance measure is IRR. He concludes that the value of IRR which is calculated from the means of variables will tend to be greater than the mean of IRR); (iii) there are dependencies between the subjective probabilities of the variables.

25. 5. However, it has been shown that if the subjective probabilities which are assessed by an individual in a given situation do not obey the rules of probability, then it is possible to devise a series of bets such that the decisions taken by the individual will cause him to lose money whatever the outcome. It is therefore reasonable to conclude that most of us would like to be consistent in the probability assessments we make, and that if inconsistencies are pointed out to us we will take steps to iron them out.
