Abstract

The present study seeks to understand ego depleting effects in autonomous multiple choice and dual choice conditions. A sample of twenty five undergraduate students will be used for a between subjects design. Participants will make an autonomous choice from either a two item list or multiple item list followed by participation in an unsolvable puzzle. Participants will then be measured on how fast they give up on said puzzle. It is hypothesized that participants in the autonomous multiple choice condition will give up on the puzzle faster than will those in the autonomous dual choice condition.
