–> Domain-Specific Self-Control

Open to all who wish to participate

Self-control is generally assumed to be a global trait that is stable across domains. For example, someone who has high self-control with food should also demonstrate high self-control with alcohol, finances, work, and other domains as well. However, some people seem to be high in self-control in some domains and low in others. In this study, you can help us understand the domain-specificity of self-control. Results of the study will be available upon request. Click on the link above to enter the study.
