- Delay Discounting [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 1 hour and 30 minutes at Study Visit 1 ]Assessed via the 27-Item Monetary Choice Questionnaire, which measures bias toward smaller, immediate rewards versus larger, delayed rewards. This questionnaire presents participants with a set of 27 choices between smaller, immediate monetary rewards and larger, delayed monetary rewards. An estimate of a participant's discounting rate (k) is calculated from the pattern of choices. Participants who discount the value of the delayed rewards more steeply, have a higher k value, are considered to be more impulsive.
- Grit [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 1 hour and 30 minutes at Study Visit 1 ]Assessed using the 8-item Short Grit Scale, which measures trait-level perseverance and passion for long-term goals. Scores range from 1 (not at all gritty) to 5 (extremely gritty).
