The Effect of Psychological Control on Temporal Discounting: Conceptual and Methodological Implications

We examine the effect of psychological control on temporal discounting across different elicitation methods. We demonstrate that low psychological control increases temporal discounting, but this outcome only occurs in matching paradigms. In choice paradigms where participants are naturally imbued with control, manipulations of low control do not affect temporal discounting.
