My collaborators, Marijke Leliveld, Ann Tenbrunsel, and I recently published a paper demonstrating that people have a self-image centered around the moral traits they possess.

The experience of suppressing a desire (e.g., enjoying a sunny day) for a long period of time leads to a state that scientists term, “ego depletion.” In a state of ego depletion two things have been shown to happen: (1) we find tempting things (e.g., delicious foods) more desirable and harder to resist and (2) we like things that are easy. But what happens if these two things are pitted against one another? Lees verder
