Abstract

This study adds to our knowledge of post-decisional regret in a sample of working adults 30 and older by: (1) determining whether people are more likely to regret actions or inactions in a workplace setting; and (2) improving upon methodological issues plaguing prior research by disentangling hypothetical versus autobiographical effects from perspective-taking on regret experience. The study utilized a 3X2 mixed experimental design, with viewpoint (autobiographical; hypothetical self; hypothetical other) as the between-subjects factor and type of regret (action; inaction) as the within-subjects factor. Data will be presented that address the critical antecedents of the number and intensity of regrets reported.
