This study will be one session of about 45-60 minutes and involves brief questionnaires and completing decision-making tasks online. This study will take place online and will be available to participants in mTurk.
The purposes of this research are to assess the effect of vivid Episodic Past Thinking (EPT) performed prior to Episodic Future Thinking (EFT) on temporal discounting in a high-discounting population online. Specifically, we will examine the effect of performing one of two types of episodic memory generation tasks (self-defining memory or EPT) prior to EFT on delay discounting. We will also examine the correspondence between the qualities and content of memories and future thoughts and their effects on outcomes.
