You are invited to participate in research on the motivation behind instant gratification.

Click here to take this brief survey. Average completion time is just two minutes.

Learn about your subconscious motivation for instant gratification as you answer the 12 questions. And contribute to the body of knowledge!

In plain English, what is instant gratification?

It is trading long-term reward for short-term pleasure. This is a very important issue to understand, as the desire for immediate gratification is responsible for a broad range of personal failures.

Examples of failures related to instant gratification:

• Eating donuts now instead of abstaining to lose weight and feel well in the long-term.

• Selling something cheap now instead of waiting for a buyer who will pay more.

• Yelling at someone immediately instead of thinking things through and delivering a more thoughtful response.

• Resting on the couch instead of working, exercising, organizing or doing something that will benefit your long-term peace of mind.

Click here to begin the survey and expand your awareness of your needs.

Your participation in this study is completely anonymous and voluntary. There are no foreseeable risks associated with this project and your honest answers are very important.

Thank you very much for your interest and support.

Again, here is the survey.  Results will be posted on this blog soon.
