Ego Depletion


.

We all aspire to be that disciplined person with tremendous willpower who does the right thing whether someone is looking or not. This ability to resist short-term gratification in pursuit of long-term goals also goes by other names: determination, drive, resolve, self-discipline, self-control and many more. We oftentimes think that it’s a matter of either we are that person or we’re not.

Our topic for today tells us that it’s not a simple matter of being “it” or not at all.

This is what Behavioral Scientists call Ego Depletion. “Ego” is used here in the psychological sense, which is the organized and critical part of thinking that balances our physical desires and moralistic aspirations. In other words, it’s our rational thinking, not the colloquial meaning, which we equate with conceit or excessive pride of oneself.

Ego Depletion refers to the idea that yes, we all have willpower or self-control but this draws upon a mental resource. As in any resource, this is also limited that can be used up; hence, our ability to make rational decisions is a limited resource that can be drained by decision overload and extreme fatigue.

The Cookie Experiment:

In 1998 psychologist Roy Baumeister, together with wife Diane Tice and other scientists conducted an experiment on self-control with the help of chocolate chip cookies. In the room where the experiment was conducted, cookies were baked giving the place that yummy aroma. They stacked some of the freshly baked cookies on one plate beside a bowl of white and red radishes.

The Cookie Experiment:

In 1998 psychologist Roy Baumeister, together with wife Diane Tice and other scientists conducted an experiment on self-control with the help of chocolate chip cookies. In the room where the experiment was conducted, cookies were baked giving the place that yummy aroma. They stacked some of the freshly baked cookies on one plate beside a bowl of white and red radishes.

image-02

It was earlier explained to the participants that the experiment was on taste perception and that they should not eat at least three hours before the experiment. With the aroma of freshly baked cookies and the two kinds of food in front of him, each participant was asked to eat his assigned food (radish only or cookies only). The experimenter left the participant to eat and went to the adjacent room with a one-way mirror to observe. After partaking in his assigned food, he was asked to do a problem-solving activity, one that’s designed to be unsolvable.

The experimenters recorded the time each participant spent on solving the problem before giving up. There was also a control group, the no-food group. Participants in this group were not asked to eat anything nor did they smell the freshly baked cookies, but went straight to the problem solving.

Here are the results: The radish condition quit the soonest, an average of 8 minutes. The cookie and no-food conditions didn’t differ in their time at 19 minutes.

And so Baumeister et al called this ego depletion. The participants who had to exercise self-control just eating the radish while smelling the aroma and seeing the more appetizing chocolate chip cookies demonstrated the human being’s limited supply of willpower. They used up or depleted their mental energy or ego. This resulted in their giving up on the problem solving a lot sooner compared to the two other groups who did not have to draw on that limited resource prior to the mental activity. (See link below to read or download the experiment.)

A number of experiments followed suit to prove this theory, using different ways to deplete willpower followed by cognitive exercises and they came up with similar results.

 

The not so just judicial rulings:

Judicial rulings are supposed to be based on laws and facts where judges apply legal reasons in a rational, mechanical and deliberative manner. Unfortunately, it is not so based on the 2011 study by Danziger, Levav, Avnaim-Pesso on the parole decisions of judges. They found out that the likelihood of granting parole is highest after the last meal taken by the judges. From a high of 65% after their last meal, favorable rulings drop gradually to almost 0% for the last case in a long series before the next break. The favorable decisions abruptly return to 65% after the break then goes down to almost 0% again, to put it bluntly, as the judges get hungrier and more exhausted.

Not granting a parole is status quo for the prisoner and takes less action from the judges. So we see here that even the judges, who I’m sure, try their best to be as impartial and rational as they can be because their decisions are dramatically life changing, are not spared from ego depletion. (See link below to read or download the experiment.)

Being conscious of our willpower reserve:

Knowing what we know now, we realize the importance of the state of our mind and wellbeing when making important decisions. We know that it’s not just a simple matter of labeling ourselves as rational and disciplined, or otherwise.

At least we can do away with the excuse of, “Tao lang po. I’m not like you who’s so disciplined, so put-together…” when we reflect on why we are unable to save and invest, how we allow ourselves to grow from one dress size to another and another, why we fail to meet work and school deadlines, how we get entangled in forbidden relationships, etc.

Using such “tao lang po” or “this is who I am” labels is more of an excuse in the hope that we get ourselves off the hook. Instead of such alibis, we are better off being aware of our current disposition, our ego supply. And because we know that our willpower is a finite resource, we have to watch out for our reserve. What is our state of mind when we go shopping? Forget retail therapy. That’s not the best way to solve a bad mood. What is our willpower reserve level when we make both big and small but regular decisions that will all pile up and ultimately bring us closer to our goals or away from them?

 

Remedies to Ego Depletion:

So what do we do to combat ego depletion? We can trick it with the right motivation. Some experiments showed that when the participants were given a meaningful reason for the exercise on hand, they persisted longer. Take note that doing things just to please others (external motivation) uses up our willpower reserve more than doing internally motivated activities. So let’s be clear on our motivations when we set our goals. And let’s “own” our goals and dreams!

image-05

 

A quick trick is to restore willpower is to take a sweet drink, maybe a sweet candy. Studies show that subjects who exerted willpower depleted their glucose levels. That’s why taking sweet candy is one of the tips in taking exams. Maybe we can use this same trick the next time we’re faced with an irresistible temptation? emotcon1

image-06 
The next time you’re faced with temptation, pop in your sweet candy!

 

Here’s another one. Willpower is similar to a muscle that can be worn out, but the good news is, just like our muscle, we can also exercise it in order to strengthen it! The next time you’re faced with a decision to make – e.g. whether to spend your entire bonus now on that nifty gadget, pause, breathe. Then go for that more difficult option but the one that you’ve originally intended to do: invest a big portion of it. Yes, it will hurt just like exercise. And just like exercise, no matter how much you hated doing it, once you’re done with it, you will feel great and proud of yourself! Do it regularly to strengthen the muscle, but have healthy intervals to allow your body to recuperate, to allow your willpower to replenish its supply.

Cheers to managing and strengthening our willpower! purse

Hey Rose! Do you take sessions on Financial Literacy? If so, what do you cover in those sessions?
Guest Feb 02, 2015
Hi Ms. Rose, Were can i get the free download excel file to show kids how they can become millionaires with regular savings. Thanks

Answered by Rose last Feb 18, 2015 / 03:25pm:

Hi, it's on the right hand side under Chapter 6, go there and look for the link: http://www.raisingpinoyboys.com/book/chapter/NgRPBRPB/Q0hBUFRFUiA2IC0gTU9ORVkgTUFUVEVSUyAoT3VyIFNvbidzIEZRKQRPBRPB

Ghurl Vacaro Jul 18, 2013
Hi Ms. Rose, I read your articles in Philippine Star and I'm quite interested on your topics about financial literacy. I just turned 25 and currently working in Riyadh, I'd like to make my savings grow while I'm still young and single, can you give me advice on how or where is the wisest way to save or invest? Thanks a lot! God bless you!

Answered by Rose last Apr 23, 2014 / 02:41pm:

Hi Ghurl Vacaro. I hope you read my article that tackled your question. I'm happy to inform you that it received a lot of hits both in this website and PhilStar.com. It was also shared many times. This means that your question helped enlighten a lot of people. Here's the link: http://www.raisingpinoyboys.com/dashboard/showArticle/MTYy

For the boys, will you also consider financial literacy as a quality that you will look for to your future gf/wife?

Answered by The Boys last Nov 30, 1999 / 12:00am:

It would be ideal if she were but it's not something we would really "require" so to speak because it's not very common. I guess as long as she's not too much of the "magastos" type because financial literacy is something that you could learn.

Guest Aug 30, 2011
Why the title "Raising Pinoy Boys?"? Its culture specific and middle class ideologue ..care to explain? thanks

Answered by Rose last Aug 31, 2011 / 09:33pm:

@Guest Aug 30, 2011. The title is Raising Pinoy Boys because it's a compilation of a mother raising her Pinoy sons. Yes it's culture specific and middle class because that's where I belong. In my over 2 decades of parenting I have always learned a lot from specific stories of book authors, parenting seminar speakers and even conversations with other parents and educators of boys. Thus, I thought it would be worthwhile to share my specific stories and those of the parents of the successful Pinoy men I featured in the book. Thank you very much for your question.

Guest Aug 10, 2011
Can we invite you to talk in our school during a parenting seminar?

Answered by Rose last Aug 10, 2011 / 09:19pm:

@Guest Aug 10, 2011 - Yes you may. I would be glad to. Just send me an email specifying your needs for the talk - the audience, the topic, etc. You may send your email to RaisingPinoyBoys@yahoo.com or through this website. Be sure to leave your name and email address. Thank you.

du u know chris tiu?

Answered by Rose last May 27, 2011 / 11:39am:

I first heard of Chris Tiu when he became a UAAP basketball player of the Ateneo team. I learned about his other admirable traits later on and decided to include him in the book. Fortunately, his mom is a friend of my co-parent so I was able to interview her. He and his parents attended the book launch (see pics in a previous article on the book launch - Jan 2011).

Angelita Kersey - Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit Women www.free50sneaker.com Apr 24, 2015
Since the Free 5.0 is marketed as a ?minimalist? shoe, Nike Free 5.0 I fully expected to only do shorter runs in them. But I was surprised by how much cushion the Free 5.0 packs. It felt much more cushioned than either the Karhu Flow Trainer or the Skechers GoRun. If I had to compare the cushion to any of the shoes I?ve run in, I would choose the Mizuno Precision before I would choose either of the minimalist shoes I?ve tried. Nike Free 4.0 In fact, if it weren?t for the minimalist marketing that comes with it, the Free 5.0 could easily pass as a flexible lightweight trainer. If the pair I received were not too small, I definitely would have gone on longer runs in the Free 5.0. There is of course an upside as well as a downside to this amount of cushion. Nike Free 3.0 The upside is the Free 5.0 will appeal to a wider audience of runners. Runners looking to move to a more minimalist shoe can use the Free 5.0 as a transition shoe. This may be especially appealing for runners who don?t want a midsole feature designed to promote a midfoot strike, Nike Free Run 3 like the ones found in both Karhu and Sketchers. Biomechanically efficient runners who are looking for a flexible trainer with a lower heel-to-toe differential (it is 9mm on the Free 5.0), but not the minimalist experience per se, can turn to the Free 5.0. The downside is runners looking for that barefoot experience will find the Free 5.0 too cushioned for their purposes. Nike puts their Phylon EVA foam in the midsole, Nike Roshe Run which gives the Free 5.0 a much firmer feel than Nike?s other shoes with Cushlon in the midsole, like the Pegasus or Vomero, but that firmness may not be enough to give minimalist runners the ground feedback they seek.
