J13. the Good and Bad of a Delayed Indulgence: Effects on Self-Perceptions and Purchase Satisfaction

We show that the mere act of delaying an indulgent purchase can evoke the same level of perceived self-control as not indulging at all –a level that is higher than in instances of immediate indulgence. Paradoxically, the bolstered perceptions of self-control resulting from a delayed indulgence, subsequently reduce purchase satisfaction.
