Self-control training in adolescences

Repeated practice of self-control in any specific domains has been hypothesised to strengthen the “resource” for self-control in other unrelated areas.

In this study, participants (N = 48 [30 females] high school students) were asked to perform a two-week training of improving posture.

Despite participants’ high rate of compliance, no corroborating effects were reported on various psychological traits i.e. aggression, narcissistic tendency, and social anxiety.
