This study aimed to empirically investigate the relationship between violation and risk propensity. Thirty-six participants were instructed to perform a cognitive task, and were informed that they should save their results. However, the saving can be skipped operationally. Thus, in this study, to skip saving was regarded as violation. Results indicated that risk propensity, especially the tendency to engage in risk-taking according to time and circumstance, was significantly related to violation. On the basis of the results, the mechanisms of violation were discussed in terms of risk propensity.
