Inhibitory spillover: increased urination urgency facilitates impulse control in unrelated domains.

Psychol Sci 2011 May 5;22(5):627-33. Epub 2011 Apr 5.

Department of Marketing Communication and Consumer Psychology, University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands.

Visceral states are known to reduce the ability to exert self-control. In the current research, we investigated how self-control is affected by a visceral factor associated with inhibition rather than with approach: bladder control. We designed four studies to test the hypothesis that inhibitory signals are not domain-specific but can spill over to unrelated domains, resulting in increased impulse control in the behavioral domain.
