Often we make decisions that put our present and future interests in conflict. Consideration of future consequences (CFC) is a measure of time orientation. Few studies have examined predictors of CFC. Self-control has been shown to be correlated with CFC and the two concepts work hand-in-hand. Additionally, education level may impact a person's future or present orientation. The current study (n=291) found self-control to predict CFC, but education did not moderate this relationship.
