Abstract  

The introduction of emotion into the research of decision making has come through the process from being intentionally neglected to being increasingly emphasized. Numerous studies demonstrate that accidental emotions that typically arise from factors external to the judgment about the decision being made have significant influences on the decision making. According to recent researches on the effect of incidental emotions on decision making, the present study proposed some implications for the future studies, that are, identifying moderating factors for carryover of incidental emotions, exploring the role of discrete emotions in decision making, and addressing the interaction effects between incidental emotions and the options’ emotional claims. Finally, the current study addressed some suggestions for the future study, such as, the induction technique of emotions, the measurement for manipulated emotions, and the way to apply different decision tasks.

Keywords emotion      decision making      incidental emotions      feelings as information theory      appraisal-tendency framework
