This is a PDF file of ‘The Financial Judgment and Decision Making Process of Women: The Role of Negative Feelings’ slides from a presentation at the Third Annual Meeting of the Academy of Behavioral Finance & Economics, September 21-23, 2011, UCLA, Los Angeles, CA.
This conference presentation provided an extensive discussion about the literature on academic studies and non-academic research endeavors (e.g., national surveys and polls) in the realm of negative emotions, gender, and decision making. The financial psychology literature on gender and negative feelings documents the hypothesis that women reveal greater degrees of negative affect (emotion) than their male counterparts about money, financial planning, and investment decisions.
