AbstractThe purpose of this study was to clarify what personality trait determines task order. We conducted a web survey (N=224, 126 men and 98 women, 20-72 years age). We asked about task order in two different decision-making situations, and measured personality traits: self-regulation, BIS, and BAS. The results showed that people who start by first doing tasks they dislike had more self-regulation. For eating situations, the results indicated that people who first eat food they dislike had more self-regulation based on an automatic motivational system. Therefore, task order may involve self-regulation of different properties. In future studies, it will be necessary to approach task order from the perspective of different self-regulation: automatic self-regulation and executive function control.
