Camaraderie in Crime: Shared Self-Control Decisions and Affiliation

We examine the outcomes of shared self-control decisions, and find that a shared self-control failure, or co-indulgence, produces greater feelings of affiliation between individuals as well as an enhanced product experience than mutual self-control or mixed outcomes. This effect is driven by increased perceptions of similarity and decreased anxiety.
