THE EFFECTS OF MOOD AND OPENNESS-TO-FEELING TRAIT ON CHOICE
Abstract:How do mood states influence risk-taking and choice? This study was conducted to demonstrate and explain the relationship of mood, risk-taking, and choice. The results showed that participants were more likely to systematically display risk-taking behavior when in a negative mood than when in a positive mood. The mood effect was moderated by openness to feelings (OF) in the individual personality.
