Decision-making style (DMS) is the learned habitual response pattern exhibited by an individual confronted with a situation requiring a decision. DMS is an important concept in empirical literature on decision making, management, consumer behavior, counseling, and vocation behavior. The recently developed DMS models were based on information processing strategies, such as dual-processing theory and regret theory, and focused on the effects of decision strategies, biases, emotions, and unconscious processing on decision making. The DMS field has also made significant progress in theoretical constructions, such as definitions, measurements, and theoretical examinations. Future research should integrate DMSs and behavioral decision-making theories, such as dual-processing theory, and construct DMS models from the perspective of evolutionary psychology.

Keywords decision making style      cognitive style      behavioral decision making      individual differences
