In daily life, individuals with decision making deficit, don't learn from negative feedbacks in risky situations and for this reason they fail in social life. The Iowa Gambling Task (IGT) is a neuropsychological test that assesses decision making in daily life through components reward, punishment and ambiguity. In this study, IGT was given to a university student population consisted of 107 participants between ages of 20-25 and 90 participants between ages of 25-60+. The most important finding of the study is performance differences between age groups on their IGT scores and the personality effect on IGT performances of post adolescents.
