Does Anticipated Future Self-Regulation Increase Present Self-Regulation? Counteractive Construal of Intertemporal Choice

This research examines how anticipated future behavior can encourage current self-regulation. Findings show that consumers are more likely to engage in self-regulatory behaviors when they anticipate resisting (vs. succumbing to) future temptation. Results also show that this effect is accounted for by counteractive construal and stronger for non-impulsive consumers.
