讲座摘要:Abstract: Intertemporal choices-decisions with consequences that play out over time-pervade our everyday life. Thus, how people form intertemporal preferences and make choices are fundamental questions in social sciences. Using a mouse-tracking experiment in which participants make intertemporal decisions under time constrains, we show that participants are heterogeneous in whether they are predisposed to impatience or patience. In particular, compared to the time-free condition, patient participants become more patient under time pressure and less patient under time delay, while impatient participants do the opposite. We quantitively decompose the attribute latency from other components in the process underlying intertemporal decisions via computational modeling. We find that the attribute latency explains individual differences in intertemporal preferences and predict how the preference changes across time conditions. In the second experiment, we manipulate the display order of the time and amount information to intervene participants’ attribute latencies, and the results show that this manipulation causally change participants’ intertemporal preferences. These findings highlight the importance of the intra-choice dynamics and deepen our understanding of the nature of intertemporal preferences.
