Decisional Conflict Predicts Myopia

Despite the centrality of conflict to understanding self-control, conflict is often not measured directly. We measured real-time conflict through participants’ mouse movements during an intertemporal choice task. Across four studies, conflict was correlated with the subjective difficulty of the decision, and conflict within these decisions predicted discount rates.
