Exploring the Affect and Regulatory Focus Interaction in Self-Regulatory Failure

We use three experimental studies to explore the interaction between affect and regulatory focus. Specifically, under promotion (prevention) focus, positive (negative) affect results in greater self-regulatory failure; and cognitive load amplifies (attenuates) the effect of promotion (prevention) focus on regulatory failure in rational (affective) context, by depleting self-regulatory resources.
