Abstract:

Past research has demonstrated that people often feel regret and guilt after being impulsive. However, using a paper-and-pencil experimental method, the authors found people to become impulsive more easily when they feel careless, and less impulsive when feeling joy or anxiety. Post-affects of impulsivity include joy, satisfaction, and – surprisingly – lack of regret and lack of guilt. This has significant implications both theoretically and practically. Analytical results are discussed and future research directions are then suggested.
