Abstract

This paper formalizes a relation between models of perfectionism and willpower in the presence of temptation. The value of a menu of options for an individual with limited willpower corresponds to the lower bound of the value assigned to the same menu by a perfectionist, when temptation and perfectionism intensities are free to vary. The relation between overwhelming temptation and the Strotz model is a particular case of the result.
