in case you aren’t following Dan Ariely’s course on irrational
behavior, this week is especially relevant for us akratics as it
covers the concept of self control and various strategies to cope with
Dan mentioned Stickk in one lecture.
So my advice: check out this week’s videos (about 90 minutes). You can
find them at https://class.coursera.org/behavioralecon-001/lecture/index
In the last bonus video, there’s a clip of Stephen Colbert discussing
the Marshmallow experiment.
@Daniel: This might be an entry point for you to chime in on the
discussion and share your angle.
At some point for instance they alluded to something like an akratic
horizon, without having a clear concept or term for it.
