Building a self-regulatory model of sleep deprivation and deception: The role of caffeine and social influence

This study first examines the role that caffeine plays in moderating the depletion of self-regulatory resources, finding caffeine does indeed boost self-regulatory resources. The study also examines how social influence impacts deceptive behaviours at work, finding those with depleted self-regulatory resources succumb to social influence, fall in line with others around them and typically engage in more deceptive behaviours.
