The social side of regret: Motivations and consequences of expressing regret

Regret is arguably a functional emotion, but research on its benefits has focused on intrapersonal consequences for learning and planning. However, theories of emotion argue that emotions also exist to serve social functions.

In this talk, I examine what motivates individuals to express regret, as well as the consequences of regret expression for person perception.
