Self-Regulation Over Long Periods of Time: Practicing a Controlled Activity Reduces Depletion of Self-Regulatory Resources
After consumers engage in self-control, they are less able to perform a second act of self-regulation presumably because they have expended precious self-regulatory resources. It is crucial to ask whether consumers who have been self-regulating over long periods of time show differential effects in terms of self-regulatory depletion as compared to consumers who have not been self-regulating for great lengths of time. Three experiments indicate that length of self-regulating renders regulation in that specific domain not as depleting it is to start a new regulatory endeavor. Being an experienced self-regulator is still, however, more depleting than not regulating whatsoever.
