Search Predicts and Changes Patience in Intertemporal Choice
Consumers often select rewarding short-term options that undermine long-term goals. The present research examines how search strategies – the ways people acquire information while making decisions – predict and influence intertemporal choice. In three large experiments, we demonstrate that search strategies predict decisions and provide causal evidence that manipulating strategies increases patience.
