The Concept of Found Time

This paper proposes a conceptual framework of found time and its multiple antecedents (e.g., source, timeframe, and characteristics), consequences (e.g., choices, self-perception, behaviors, and emotions), and moderators (e.g., individual differences, temporal distance, and personal goals). We discuss some of our empirical findings to illustrate the complex nature of found time.
