Quotes

"We predicted that when food is presented to children as making them strong or as a tool to achieve a goal such as learning how to read or count, they would conclude the food is not as tasty and therefore consume less of it" write authors Michal Maimaran (Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University) and Ayelet Fishbach (University of Chicago Booth School of Business)...
"With the plethora of low-effort products on the market today, a brand's intuition might be to provide consumers with the easiest, most high-tech routes to achieve their goals. However, our research reveals that the more consumers experience threats to there sense of control with respect to health or fitness goals, the more desirable structured, high -- effort program where consumers drive their own outcomes" the authors conclude

I had hold of the edge of the ice to prevent my sinking, by it was too smooth and slippery to climb up by, but at least I got hold of the seal's hind flippers and managed to pull myself up by them."
