Pursuit of Regulatory Goals and the Use of Self-Regulatory Resources

ABSTRACT - This paper proposes that pursuit of a prevention goal demands more self-regulatory resources than does pursuit of a promotion goal. As a result, depleting self-regulatory resources should be more likely to adversely influence the pursuit of a prevention goal than the pursuit of a promotion goal. Two studies are conducted in the contexts of hypothesis generating and endowment effect to test this proposition. Results of the studies provided support for the proposition.
