Yes however recent studies indicate that self control might be a finite resource o.O

Just an idea nothing solid yet :P


I dont think i understood this.

Oh they say that the ego-depletion effect may be false. Now i am confused, you said they were trying to prove the effect, but the article states that it may be false.

If i say no when i dont want too, i can only do so finite times? I dont get it. I mean i get it when there is a fresh pizza and your hungry, you stare at the pizza and say no, but the longer you stare the easier it is to give in. Is that what they mean?


kind of i guess but i was guessing more at when your body acts without your own control thats what i got from it.

Yeah ego-depletion. You loose your self control. But the article states that it may be false. Sooo, hmmm.

When it comes to people who I am not emotionally connected to? Certainly. However, if I share a strong emotional bond with someone (not necessarily a romantic relationship), it is difficult to get hold of myself. I am used to hiding and neglecting my emotions, which turns out to be quite unhealthy.

Yes I think I have pretty good self control.
However when it comes to sugar it can be a bit hard since I have a mild sugar adiction.

I thought I did, then CR posted this article -

http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2016/08/02-1/life-sized-and-you-thought-there-is-never-a-girl-online-3d-mousepad-headed-to-comiket

But on a more serious note, I can control myself if I want to. But the desire is rarely there. Meh, what the hell I don't care if I get fat, one more cookie!
