The Effect of Aging on Consumer Regret

This research investigated the moderating role of decision justifiability on age-related differences in the experience of regret. Older (vs. young) adults expressed more regret in response to a scenario in which a justifiable option was clearly defined, but not in the absence of a readily justifiable option.
