Countdown Or Countup: Effect of Direction of Time-Keeping on Resource Deficiency and Related Downstream Preferences

This research studies the impact of direction of time-keeping on resource deficiency perception and related downstream preferences. Through four studies, we infer that downward (upward) time-keeping leads to higher (lower) resource deficiency perception, as manifested in higher (lower) preference for calorie-rich foods, higher (lower) risk-aversion and lower (higher) helping intentions.
