The Effect of Future Focus on Self-Control Is Moderated By Self-Efficacy

We demonstrate that the effects of future focus on self-control are moderated by self-efficacy. For those who are high (low) in perceived self-efficacy, focusing on the future leads to lower (higher) self-control. This occurs because future focus causes those high (low) in self-efficacy to visualize successful coping behavior (goal failure).
