A Hot/Cool-System Analysis of Delay of Gratification: Dynamics of Willpower.
Metcalfe, Janet; Mischel, Walter
Psychological Review, v106 n1 p3-19 Jan 1999
Proposes a two-system framework for understanding the processes that enable self-control as exemplified in the delay of gratification paradigm. A cool, cognitive "know" system and a hot, emotional "go" system are postulated. The interactions between these two systems allow explanation of findings on willpower from three decades of research.
