A great deal of research in psychology, economics, marketing, and other social sciences has examined self-control and time inconsistency. Such research has relied on a myopic premise. Late-twentieth-century and early twenty-first-century research advances an alternative perspective, namely that of excessive farsightedness and over-control. By exploring what is essentially a reverse form of self-control, this research contributes to a fuller understanding of self-regulation as a dynamic and general process.
