Four experiments are reported in which participants reproduced or verbally(More)
Lack of self-control has been suggested to facilitate norm-transgressing behaviors because of the operation of automatic selfish impulses.

In the present research, we extended this effect to(More)
OBJECTIVE Previous studies on the relationship between threat and right-wing attitudes have tended to focus on either internal threat, emanating from one's private life, or external threat, originating from society.
