If you’ve got a closet full of unworn clothes and a credit card bill through the roof, chances are you’re an impulse shopper. You see something; you want it; you buy it. This could be because your brain has more dopamine in it than your more cautious friends. High levels of dopamine cause people to act rashly, which would explain that pair of hot pink pleather pants in the back of your closet.
I only impulse buy when I’m stressed — I wonder what that says about my dopamine levels. How many of you have a really embarrassing impulse buy tale? Please, share — we all love a good shopping horror story.
