The Experience Matters More Than You Think: Weighting Intrinsic Incentives More Inside Than Outside of an Activity

Six studies provide evidence for this shift across a variety of activities (exercising, working, and lab tasks), and measures (rated importance, actual and planned persistence, and choice regret).
