Framing Wait Time Changes Time Perception and Patience

We show that patience for a larger-later (vs. smaller-sooner) reward depends on the semantic framing of wait time. In far (vs. long) frames, patience is influenced relatively more by the magnitude of the larger-later reward—increasing the size of the reward contracts time perception and increases patience.
