Abstract Successful self‐control has many benefits for individuals and society as a whole. Self‐regulation relies on a limited resource. After one act of self‐control, this resource is reduced, thereby impairing future acts of self‐control. Self‐control resources can be managed and conserved for future tasks. Recent research on perceived self‐control (in the self and others), self‐control in interpersonal interactions, and the physiological basis of the limited resource model point to promising areas for future self‐control research.
