This video was part of an introductory webinar from a few years ago. I speak about four common myths, and “The Willpower Gap” conversation begins around 17 minutes from the start.

Links to research below the video.

“…the findings suggest that reduced self-control after a depleting task or during demanding periods may reflect people’s beliefs about the availability of willpower rather than true resource depletion.”

“…alarming signs of publication bias.”

“…it seems difficult to be conclusive about the existence of this effect.”
