When Later Never Comes: Postponing Consumption Boosts Self-Control
Consumers have difficulty controlling their consumption. Yet strategies that encourage self-control are rare. Three experiments tested a novel route toward self-control success. Relative to the most common strategy, restraint, postponing consumption to the indefinite future reduced short- and long-term consumption of the postponed snack. Process and implications will be discussed.
