Abstract

Our study investigated the effect personality and mood had on decision-making. We compared the speed and accuracy of people who scored high vs. low on a measure of neuroticism and on a decision-making task. We also examined whether mood was related to speed and accuracy on the same decision-making task. We found no statistically significant evidence that either personailty or mood distinguished participant's performance on our decision-making task.
