Let Freedom Ring? Divergent Effects of Free Choice on Goal Pursuit
This research considers choice freedom in the context of goal pursuit. We show that when a goal is highly active at the time of choice, free (vs. restricted) choice satisfies the goal, decreasing subsequent goal pursuit, whereas when a goal is inactive, free (vs. restricted) choice increases goal activation/ pursuit.
