Abstract: In this paper, I address the puzzle of the weakness of will by defending a dual process model with a parallel-competitive architecture, based on the idea that stimulus-driven and goal-directed processes can both be automatic. According to this model, goal-directed processes are the main mechanism for both optimal and suboptimal behavior, including weak-willed behavior.
