Sometimes we are tempted to do one thing (e.g., order the burger) but know we should do another (e.g., choose a healthier alternative). Such self-control conflicts, moments in which an impulse and a higher order goal are in conflict, are pervasive in everyday life. They are at the heart of the self-control process, given that without such a conflict self-control would be unnecessary. In her thesis, Daniela Becker investigates how people experience and deal with conflict, and whether this knowledge helps to improve control over eating behavior.
