Abstract: In the course of goal pursuit, giving in to temptation is inevitable. Hence, the present research sought to explore the elaboration processes that occur after one gives in to temptation. Two accounts that explicated pre-temptation processes, namely, the justification and the compensatory intentions accounts, were extrapolated to make postulations on behavioural, affective and motivational processes after one gives in to temptation. Study 1 was a field study which explored the presence of the two accounts in a university setting during the reading week. In study 2, participants were experimentally manipulated to perceive if they had given in to temptations or not. Results across the two studies reveal that (a) individuals who had given in to temptation planned lesser effort for goal-pursuit, and (b) the relationship between giving in to temptation and effort planned for goal-pursuit was explained by motivation towards achieving the goal. Taken together, the findings shed insights regarding post-temptation processes and demonstrated support for the use of justification processes after one gives in to temptation.
