Description

New research suggests that people may not always want help with sticking to their New Year’s resolutions. Individuals often make resolutions in January to maintain healthy lifestyle regimes – for example to eat better or exercise more often – then fail to keep them. Behavioural scientists frequently interpret such behaviour as evidence of a conflict between two ‘selves’ of a person — a Planner (in charge of self-control) and a Doer (who responds spontaneously to the temptations of the moment). A team of researchers from the Universities of East Anglia (UEA), Warwick, Cardiff and Lancaster in the UK and Passau in Germany investigated how far people identify with their Planners and their Doers.
