An interesting study that suggests that will power takes real, actual, measurable energy. I wonder a) what all the ramifications of this are (is this going to be like light being both a particle and a wave?) and b) if this is correct, what ramifications does that have for how we educate our students? Hard to expect them to exert will power if we run them into the ground. I wonder how we could help them “bulk up” their wills. Mine too (says the portly gentleman on his third cream soda of the last hour).
