The science of willpower and self-control

ASK one of the world’s leading social psychologists, Roy Baumeister, about willpower and self-control.

Self Control & Decision Making

The Need to Belong

How do people react to being rejected or excluded from social groups? How do they respond to romantic heartbreak?


Human Sexuality

How do nature and culture influence people's sex drive, rape and sexual coercion, and the cultural suppression of female sexuality. How do couples negotiate their sexual patterns?

Irrationality & Self-Destructive Behavior

Why do people do stupid things? Self-defeating behavior is the essence of irrationality.

Consciousness & Free Will
