Depletion Versus Load: Differential Effects on Self-Control in the Reactance-To-Recommendations Paradigm

Two studies differentiate depletion from cognitive load. We argue that depletion results in no awareness of decrements in decision-making capabilities, whereas load leads to such awareness. As a result, under some conditions depletion leads to less self control than load; under other conditions this effect reverses.
