What decisions we regret most?

arrepentimiento The decisions we make in our love relationships are the main cause of regret (18.1%), followed by those related to the family (15.9%), education (13.1%), professional career (12, 2%) and finance (9.9%). The choices we least regret are those that have to do with spirituality (2.3%), free time (1.5%) and with ourselves (1%).

The results also suggest that we regret more of not having acted in a past situation than of decisions that involved action.

Roese says that while regret is painful , it is an essential component of the human experience .
