Emotion regulation refers to the set of processes used in response to emotional experiences and how we express our reactions to emotions (Gross, 1999). - This means that decision making and memory are going to be used in the emotion regulation process. A humans decision making ability and his or her ability to use their memory is going to be affected by the emotional nature of their experiences. Also, someone's personality might influence those processes as well. Someone who is action-oriented or harm-avoidant is going to respond differently than someone who might be more lazy.
