Examining Role of Self-Control Exertion in the Strength Model of Self-Control Using Modified Versions of the Sequential Task Paradigm
MetadataShow full item record
Current study examines the role of effort on the ego-depletion effect in a sequential-task experimental paradigm as employed by the strength model of self-control. Evidence from three studies, including one meta-analysis and two laboratory experiments, indicates that conventional approaches of measuring self-control exertion is inadequate for testing the strength model. Furthermore, attempts to employ monetary incentives and task duration similarly did not have any significant effect on the ego-depletion effect.

Self-report and behavioural approaches to the measurement of self-control: Are we assessing the same construct?Allom, Vanessa; Panetta, G.; Mullan, Barbara; Hagger, Martin (2016)The capacity for self-control has been consistently linked to successful execution of health behaviour. However, a lack of consensus remains in the conceptualisation and measurement of the construct. Notably, self-report ...
Illusionary delusions. Willingness to exercise self-control can mask effects of glucose on self-control performance in experimental paradigms that use identical self-control tasksChatzisarantis, Nikos; Hagger, Martin (2015)The purpose of the present article is to highlight limitations of Lange and Eggert's methodology of using identical self-control tasks in testing effects of glucose on depletion of self-control resources and self-control ...
Hagger, Martin; Wood, C.; Stiff, C.; Chatzisarantis, N. (2010)Self-regulation is an important component of psychosocial theories of exercise behaviour and lack of self-regulatory skills are associated with low adherence to health-related exercise. This review presents a strength-energy ...
