Self-control, Expected-ideal Gap and Time-Inconsistent Preferences

Lijia Wei

 Abstract: In this paper we study theoretically and experimentally in what circumstances and what kind of individuals are willing to accept a social discipline to overcome temptation and solve their self-control problem which is induced by time-inconsistency. We formulate a simple intra-person, multiple-self model in which the individual can choose to accept a discipline which may impose a punishment if he/she will not invest in a project in the future. Thus the discipline can act as a commitment to enhance the motivation for one's future selves. We conduct a  field experiment in a university course where the students can choose freely to accept two contracts at the beginning the semester. The contract A is that the student will not be counted the attendance and get all the participation grade directly. The contract B is that the student will be counted the attendance and will be punished if absence during the semester. Both theory and experimental results consistently argue that the social discipline is valuable for the individuals with intermediate self-control who are willing to accept it. Partial naivety may distort individuals' contractual strategy.
