Abstract

Using self regulation theory, we predict that angry individuals will cheat more than guilty individuals. Across three studies, angry participants exhibited lower self regulation than guilty participants and angry participants indeed cheated more than guilty participants. Self regulatory resources mediated the effect of anger and guilt on cheating behavior.
