Why do some people fold to an all-in but will call $80 of their $150 stack on the turn?

(1/3 nl, i have a set, pot = $100)

1) and call off the other $70 on the river?

2) also, if they probably are on a draw, is it better to get a majority of their stack on the turn knowing they wont call anything on the river if they miss?

or try to get it all on the turn and if they fold, it's ok because they're folding out their equity?

Because sometimes people donít make good poker decisions?

Seen it too many times to count. My guess is that they don't see the turn setting up for the river shove. When the river shove comes, they just see the big pot and want their shot at it. I suppose curiosity comes into it too.

I've noticed this in live poker, people seem to fold more often against an all-in.

Maybe they just think you must have a good hand to risk all your chips?
Maybe they like to call and be able to continue playing or even bluffing on the river? Even when it makes little sense.
Maybe it's just confirmation bias?

Forcing people to fold out their equity when you have a big hand is usually a huge mistake.
You want them to call, so bet the max amount you think they will often call. (EV calculation)
Don't give them correct odds to call though, obviously.
