No Rev it doesn't. Willpower and self control are two different things. So are opinion and hope, with reality a close third!

Actually I am confused by the article quoted. The statement was that intelligence and self- control are indicators of success, which I agree is probably true. Then the text morphs into a discussion of self-control and willpower. Whilst I agree that self-control is in short supply nowadays I cannot agree that it is the same as intelligence. Neither is willpower.

Have I missed something?
