15B Subjective Age and Self-Control

While people cannot change their chronological age, they can feel younger or older than their chronological age. This research investigates how feeling younger than one’s age influences self-control in consumption decisions. Our findings show that feeling young can improve self-control particularly when making food consumption decisions.
