This is an online version of the Consideration of Future Consequences Scale.

The idea of "consideration of future consequences" as a personality trait was concived by Strathman (1994) as "the extent to which people consider distant vs immediate consequences of potential behaviors".

The inventory consists of twelve first person statements. For each you must rate how characteristic (how much like) it is of you. It should take less than one minute to complete.

Your participation in this assessment in voluntary and is for strictly educational purposes. It is not clinically administered and so is not suitable for making medical decisions with. Your answers will be recorded and possibly used for research and/or otherwise distributed in an anonymous fashion.
