What Role Do Emotions Play in Our Decision-Making?

By ADMIN - September 28 2021

Opinion

By A. Kerr

The definition of emotion in the Oxford Dictionary states that it is “a natural instinctive state of mind deriving from one’s circumstances, mood, or relationships with others.” There are several different human emotions; here are a few basic ones: anger, fear, happiness, love, sadness, and surprise.

What role do emotions play in our decision-making? The state of mind that an individual is in could alter their decision-making. This could lead to a rash of judgment or judgments. It is best to think about the outcome or the consequences before making a decision.

Emotions are natural reactions in human behavior. While I believe our emotions play a role in our decision-making, I also think that past experiences could be a factor in the decisions we make. Other people are also instrumental in one’s personal decision-making because of the reaction they may display toward the decision-maker.
