Choice and Quantity in Conflict: Post-Taste Food Consumption and Inferences of Self-Control

Much research uses observed choices of vice versus virtue foods to make inferences about self-control.

Two experiments demonstrate that trait self-control can have an ironic effect on actual intake of supposedly virtuous choices.
