Objective: This research attempted to clarify the role played by personality traits and self-regulated motivation in affectingdecision-making tendencies. Method: Study 1 (n = 209) examined whether the Big Five personality traits predict minimising,maximising, and satisficing tendencies; Study 2 (n = 460) tested the mediating role of self-regulatory orientations in the relationshipbetween personality traits and decision-making tendencies by performing structural equation modelling with latentvariables. Results: Conscientiousness emerged as the strongest positive predictor of maximising, whereas openness to experience,conscientiousness, and agreeableness emerged as negative predictors of satisficing. As for the mediational model, bothlocomotion and assessment played a role in mediating the relationships between the personality traits and decision-making tendencies.Conclusions: This research provided interesting insights into the underlying motivations and strategies that lead individualsto maximise, satisfice, or minimise.
