INVESTIGATE THE ROLE OF IMPULSIVITY IN DECISIONS MAKING DURING GAMBLING TASK: CASE STUDY
Keywords:Decisions Making, Impulsivity, Iowa Gambling Task, Personality and Information Processing Style.
The aim of the current study is to understand impulsivity, reward and loss sensitivity in decision making using Iowa Gambling Task and investigate how impulsivity affects decision- making using BIS/BAS scale. We investigate how the personality trait determines decision making using NEO-FFI scale. Method: We assessed 130 participants for conducting two types of experiment (1) Choice Behavior Test is conducted with the help of Iowa Gambling Task (IGT) on the computer screen.(2) Personality Test is conducted with the help of Behavior Inhibition system and Behavior Approach System (BIS/BAS), NEO-F FI( NEO-Five Factor Inventory) scale and Rational-Experiential Inventory (REI).Results: The result indicated that participants who were low on impulsivity fared worst on IGT task compared to the participants who were high on impulsivity. Similar results were demonstrated for personality traits and information processing styles. The results imply that personality traits determine decision-making process. Similarly, information processing styles evaluate preferences for information processing that determine the decisions making and Impulsivity affects decision making.
